Commission studies patterns of radiation therapy around US  The nationwide study of the patterns of radiation therapy sponsored by the American College of Radiology enters another phase this month.As the name of the study implies, its purpose is to determine the actual patterns of radiation therapy care in the United States, to identify the scientific and functional areas where further research and development is needed, and to make recommendations for these areas of need.Sixty radiation therapy residents will visit randomly selected facilities across the country.
