October 23, 2019 -- The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) have teamed up to release seven updated practice parameters for radiation therapy (RT) treatments.

ACR and ASTRO developed three practice parameters:

  • ACR-ASTRO Practice Parameter for the Performance of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy
  • ACR-ASTRO Practice Parameter for Image-Guided Radiation Therapy
  • ACR-ASTRO Practice Parameter for Communication: Radiation Oncology

In addition, four other parameters were developed in collaboration with the American College of Nuclear Medicine (ACNM), the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS), the Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR), and the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR):

  • ACR-ACNM-ASTRO-SNMMI Practice Parameter for the Performance of Therapy with Unsealed Radiopharmaceutical Sources
  • ACR-ACNM-ASTRO-SNMMI Practice Parameter for the Performance of Therapy with Radium-223
  • ACR-ACNM-ASTRO-SNMMI-SPR Practice Parameter for Treatment of Benign and Malignant Thyroid Disease with I-131 Sodium Iodide
  • ACR-ABS-ACNM-ASTRO-SIR-SNMMI Practice Parameter for Selective Internal Radiation Therapy or Radioembolization with Microsphere Device Brachytherapy Device for Treatment of Liver Malignancies

The practice parameters can be downloaded from the ASTRO's website.
