Acute damage occurs within 90 days of exposure, and is dose dependent, ranging from transient erythema, to dry a
  • Radiation-Induced Cutaneous Damage - Treatment, Prevention, Patient Education

  • Patient Education - Radiation-induced cutaneous damage - Late Effects
    Summary Radiation-induced cutaneous damage (RICD) is a common side effect of radiation therapy that affects your skin. As much as 95 percent of all patients receiving radiation therapy will experience some form of RICD. (Bray et al. 2016).

  • Patient Education - Radiation-induced cutaneous damage - Acute Effects
    Radiation-induced cutaneous damage (RICD) is a common side effect of radiation therapy. Initial skin changes caused by radiation (acute effects) are usually seen within 90 days from the day the patient receives radiotherapy. This evidence-based topic for patients and caregivers answers common questions related to acute effects of RICD. It can be printed at the point-of-care or digitally shared with patients.
