Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer

Post by fabbychx on Sun Aug 16, 2009 11:00 pm

The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has recently updated its popular patient brochure, Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer



Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer
is a four-color brochure that helps women understand the types of
radiation therapy they may be offered, including newer treatments like
three-dimensional radiation therapy (3DCRT), intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and breast brachytherapy. The brochure also explains
possible
side effects, how to get more information on clinical trials and
support groups, and offers tips for caring for yourself during
treatment.

“The diagnosis of breast cancer can be overwhelming. Recognizing this, ASTRO
created its brochures to educate patients on the lifesaving benefits of
radiation therapy,” said Gregory Patton, M.D., chair of ASTRO’s
Communications Committee and a radiation oncologist at Northwest Cancer
Specialists, P.C., in Portland, Ore. “We continue to update our
brochures on a regular basis, so that patients can have the most upto-
date information when making treatment decisions.”

Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer
is one of 16 brochures in English and Spanish ASTRO offers. As part of
its public awareness campaign, ASTRO has distributed more than 650,000
hard copies of its brochures.

Originated in 2003, ASTRO’s Public
Awareness Campaign brings valuable and supportive information to
patients and their families. Each brochure is written in collaboration
with physicians familiar with the sitespecific material and patient
support organizations. To learn more about ASTRO, visit www.astro.org.

that's why it is also one of our objectives as RT students to make people aware about radiation. everything has a negative side ofcourse. Radiation is feared by many people because they dont know much about it.. we are blessed to know more about radiation, and because we are, we have to impart that knowledge. bounce
