Radiation Therapy Presentations

ASTRO has created PowerPoint presentations for members to use as a resource for presentations to other medical professionals and the public. The Communications Committee is working to produce additional disease-site specific presentations.

The general PowerPoints include a comprehensive presentation designed to use with other health care professionals, such as during grand rounds, and a presentation to use with the general public, such as during a Rotary Club presentation.

The disease-site specific PowerPoints were created with the intention of educating other medical professionals, including residents and fellows and other oncologists.

All of the PowerPoints are editable to meet your needs and contain photos and talking points.
