Use of Recommended Radiation Therapy in the Rural U.S.


This study used cancer registry data from 10 U.S. states to examine which rural cancer patients received recommended radiation therapy and what factors influenced receipt of recommended treatment. Identifying gaps in radiation therapy will inform cancer centers, rural program planners, and policy makers in rural cancer service location and cancer support program development. Funded by HRSA’s ORHP.
