ASTRO has compiled a selection of resources for radiation oncology professionals. The resources were developed by clinical teams and based on the best available information at the time they were posted and may be outdated or superseded. Physicians, and their patients, must make the ultimate judgment regarding specific treatment decisions. They are not meant to replace clinical judgment, but to help treatment teams strengthen their clinical management of patients and support decision-making processes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
