Radiation oncology as a profession is in a period of retrenchment due to the economic crisis. There is also a growing demand from payors to show value for these treatments, said ASTRO President Anthony Zeitman, M.D. He says the technologies used need to undergo rigorous clinical testing to show what works best and what is most cost-effective. Part of ASTRO's push is for a national registry to help advance this data collection.
