This document includes links and descriptions for relevant patient education related to radiation therapy treatment. Patients treated with radiation therapy undergo imaging before and during their treatment, and often have questions about that (CBCT). Patients also often wonder what the treatment room and department may look like and can take a virtual tour with the OHSU Radiation Medicine 3-D Guided Tour. Finally, the Radiation Therapy Treatment Introduction has some great basic information. All three were developed in connection with a patient education project, and some have been disseminated to patients already.
