Title

ANROTAT Radiation Oncology Register Pilot (TRP 11.B)

Summary

As part of the ANROTAT study a patient register was developed to help researchers find out if information about a patients cancer and radiation therapy treatment could be easily collected by hospital staff from hospital information systems and entered into an electronic data management system designed to collect information about what happens to people who have radiation therapy treatment for cancer.

Information was collected on patients that participated in the ANROTAT study and that had received radiation therapy treatment for their cancer treatment within the past five years.
