ASTRO Releases Pamphlets on Lymphoma

The American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) has published two new patient information brochures to help patients with lymphoma understand their treatment options. Radiation Therapy for Non- Hodgkins Lymphoma and Radiation Therapy for Hodgkins Lymphoma to help patients and their families understand how radiation therapy works to cure cancers of the lymphatic system.

"Radiation therapy has been proven to be quite effective in the treatment of lymphomas, particularly Hodgkins," said Louis Harrison, M.D., Chair of the ASTRO Communications Committee and a radiation oncologist at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. "I hope these brochures will help people with lymphomas better understand their treatment options so they can make the best, most informed decision on their care."

The pamphlets can be downloaded at http://www.astro.org/patient/treatment_information/.
I helped proofread the drafts for ASTRO :-)
