I. Our goal is to conduct a randomized controlled trial to determine the impact of a visual presentation in the context of a radiation oncologist's discussion with patient during consultation on patient satisfaction at end of consultation visit and at end of treatment, on anxiety at start of treatment, on decision regret following treatment, and on perception of side effects following treatment. Of note, the attending radiation oncologist will be responsible for reviewing the Powerpoint presentation with the patient, taking time to answer any questions that the patient has
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized into 1 of 2 arms.
ARM A (STANDARD EDUCATION): Patients receive a standard prostate cancer radiation oncology consultation.
ARM B (VISUAL ENHANCED EDUCATION): Patients receive a visually enhanced prostate cancer educational Powerpoint presentation including prostate anatomy, pathologic results, surgical options, radiation therapy, and prognosis with pictographs during radiation oncology consultation.

- Decision-Regret - based on Ottawa scale [ Time Frame: Up to 12 weeks ]Sample size was determined based on this primary outcome - with estimated mean of 16 in Arm A and mean of 8 in Arm B, with standard deviation of 15, with 80% power and alpha of 0.05.
- Satisfaction - SCA [ Time Frame: baseline, end of treatment, and long-term follow-up ]
- Symptoms based on EPIC-26 short form [ Time Frame: baseline, end of treatment, and long-term follow-up ]
- Anxiety - Memorial MAX-PC scale [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
