New Spanish-Language Videos and Brochures Provide Cancer Patients with Overview of Radiation Therapy

Cancer patients who speak Spanish have new tools to help them understand treatment options for their disease. The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) today released a series of Spanish-language patient videos on radiation therapy for cancer, including breast, prostate, lung, brain and other common cancer types. The videos complement a set of Spanish-language brochures on radiation therapy that ASTRO released earlier this year.
