NAACCR Webinar Series

Session 1 of the new series was a big hit!  My favorite part was Wilson Apollo’s excellent overview on various radiation techniques used to treat prostate cancer how to code those techniques. The November session (coming up quick!) will be presented by Denise Harrison and Kelli Olsen. They will be discussing how to code Lung primaries.
