This article discusses the Radiation Injury Treatment Network (RITN), a cooperative effort of the National Marrow Donor Program and the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation. RITN educates hematologists, oncologists, and stem cell transplant specialists to treat casualties of radiation emergencies. RITN members are transplant units within hospitals across the nation available to provide surge capacity by transferring patients, or by having practitioners provide medical expertise in person or remotely to health care facilities caring for patients with marrow toxic injuries.
