As per available reports about 81 journals, 208 Conferences, 34 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to radiation oncology and about 2,690,000 articles are being published on the current trends in radiation oncology. In terms of research annually, United States, United Kingdom, Japan and Germany are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to radiation oncology are being carried out. Radiation Oncology is one of three medical specialties involved in the treatment of cancer. It involves the use of ionizing radiation such as megavoltage x rays or radionuclides to hit cancerous tissue (tumour). It is based on the fact that high energy radiation damages the DNA of the malignant cells, leading to cellular death, thereby controlling the cell division. Sometimes, it is also used to treat some benign diseases and benign tumours.
The Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Radiation Therapy is an academic journal – hosted by OMICS publishing GROUP – a pioneer in open access publishing–and is listed among the top 10 journals in radiation oncology. Each year research scientists have noticed a rise in the number of congresses being held in this field. The Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Radiation Therapy provides a unique platform to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of radiation oncology, thus bridging the gap between researchers and young scientists.
OMICS publishing GROUP – a pioneer in organizing international conferences. OMICS Group is a pioneer and leading scientific event organizer, which organises over 100 Scientific Conferences all over the globe annually with the support from various scientific associations. Since its inception, OMICS Group has focused on meeting the needs of the scientific community, through strong tie-up with business and industry, while at the same time accomplishing international benchmarks and accreditation standards. OMICS Group Conferences are integrated with workshops, symposia, trade shows and world congresses by bringing together people on a single platform thereby achieving its motto of escalating and enlightening the lamp of knowledge across the world in all the areas of Science, Medicine and Technology.
