Gray Zone-Better Late than Never...Better Never Than Late

The ultimate goal of radiation oncology research is to improve clinical care.  As a specialty, we tackle diverse research questions, addressing every type of cancer and encompassing cancer biology and radiation physics.  But despite our best efforts, evidence-based medicine cannot provide 1 clear answer to every clinical problem.  In many patient scenarios, the best management approach remains uncertain, leaving room for difference of opinion and constructive debate.  To this end, we present the Red Journal Gray Zone where we provide difficult or controversial clinical cases.  After each case you will read the management plan favored by a few specialists in that particular field.  We also want to hear from you!  After reading the case please access the poll and tell us what you think.
