Aims & Vision of AROI

Radiation has been in use for the treatment of diseases for more than 100 years.  A common platform of Radiology Association was active till 1977. When a bunch of radiation oncologists decided to form ‘our own association’.  This gave birth to ‘Association of Radiation Oncologists of India (AROI)’ and opening conference of was held at Nagpur in 1978.
