Because you may receive more than one round of radiation therapy, it's easiest if you keep a separate record for each round of radiation that includes:

  • name, address and phone number of institution where radiation was given
  • name, address and phone number of doctor who supervised your radiation
  • nurse or nurse practitioner's name and phone number
  • medical record number
  • dates radiation given
  • type of machine or technology used (linear accelerator, brachytherapy, etc.)
  • area treated (include areas shielded)
  • amount of radiation per session
  • total dose of radiation
  • copies of all radiation reports
