The prognosis for Hodgkin's disease patients has improved significantly since the early 1960s.
The reasons for this improvement are multifactorial.
In the Patterns of Care Study of the American College of Kadiology, national surveys to examine process and outcome of patients treated for Hodgkin's disease in 1973 and 1983 were completed.
Data were compared for patients who had Stage I-II Hodgkin's disease and who were treated with radiation therapy alone.
Clinical characteristics of the patients in the two different treatment eras were similar.
There were important differences in treatment parameters.
