Philosophy

Radiation Nation is dedicated to a collaborative approach to sharing for all involved in the use of radiation medicine:

Patients                                    Caregivers                                 Medical Professionals

Although radiation oncology is very technology-driven, the purpose of those technologies remains healing and caring. Its fundamental guiding principles remain the same as medicine in general.  This website aims to be a resource to lessen suffering and enhance health.

We believe that ionizing radiation is a valuable form of medicine that deserves its own forum for discussion.  With your help,  we can improve the quality of care for you and others globally.

Expertise is important but never perfect.  We value the contributions of academic and community healthcare professionals, patients, caregivers, and anyone else interested enough to share.  All opinions, whether you’re an expert or know very little, are respected and valuable when the goal is to improve care.  Please see our community guidelines.
