The Board of Directors of the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (ASMIRT - formerly the AIR) and the Board of Medical Radiations Online (MRLO – The College of the AIR) have decided to close the MRLO website.  All content and educational properties and activities associated with MRLO will be absorbed and re-presented under the umbrella of the ASMIRT as soon as practically possible.

The Board wish to see the MRLO content available for all members through the member’s portal. In the coming few months, members will see some changes occurring with the CPD platform, and access to further materials which will assist with members CPD.

The ASMIRT Board would like to thank Bruce Harvey, Associate Professor Tony Smith and the MRLO Board for their commitment to MRLO.
