STRO Model Policy
The American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) is the international association for radiation oncology.
This organization helps set the standard of care for radiation oncology treatments across the world.
Their mission is to improve patient care through professional education, clinical practice, advancement of science and advocacy.
The healthcare industry, including doctors, Medicare, and the American Medical Association each look to ASTRO for standards of care.
Upon reviewing clinical research, ASTRO has developed a model policy that defines appropriate radiation treatment for specific cancers.
The CyberKnife Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) is the standard of care for many cancer disease sites.
ASTRO believes the CyberKnife SBRT is the right choice for treating tumors of the brain and spine, early stage lung cancer, prostate cancer and many others.
