  • 1. I couldn’t have had a better experience. Through the five sessions, I didn’t even know the radiation was happening and there were really no side effects - Jon M., prostate cancer patient “ ” National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Guidelines for Prostate Cancer • In January 2014, the NCCN updated its NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology® to include stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) as a treatment option for prostate cancer. To review the complete guidelines, visit www.NCCN.org. • NCCN is an alliance of 23 of the world’s leading cancer centers. These institutions work together to develop treatment guidelines for many cancers and are dedicated to research that improves the quality of cancer care. • The update to the NCCN Guidelines demonstrates acceptance and support of SBRT as a treatment option for prostate cancer from a leading, world- renown coalition of cancer centers. • NCCN Guidelines are developed and updated annually by nearly 950 clinical professionals and researchers from the NCCN member institutions. • The guidelines assist individuals involved in cancer care, such as physicians, nurses, patients and their families, with the decision-making process and are intended to advance the fight against cancer. • The NCCN update follows a 2013 published model coverage policy by the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). The policy developed by ASTRO helpsinsurancecompaniesprovideinsurancebenefits tomenforthetreatmentofprostatecancer.Toreview thecompletemodelpolicy,visitwww.astro.org.
