Patient Care and Research

ASTRO's commitment to improving patient care and safety can be seen through many of our initiatives. Clinical practice tools, such as guidelines and white papers, products to ensure patient safety, like APEx, RO-ILS and IHE-RO, and research support opportunities are all professional tools created to assist with patient care.

Additionally, ASTRO has created educational materials such as brochures, videos and PowerPoints to enable our members and referring physicians to explain radiation therapy to patients while assisting them in their treatment decisions.
