SASCRO Statement on Itinerant Practice as it Relates to Prostate Seed Implants

    • About:SASCRO's view is that such radiation oncologists must deliver the exact same level of service as at their resident practice. It is SASCRO’s contention that Oncologists should personally consult with patients and do an independent assessment of such patients' suitability for such procedure. Such consultation should include a full explanation of all the possible treatment options in order to ensure that the patient is in a position to give full informed consent. SASCRO deems it inappropriate to order radio-active seeds for such procedure without the above having been done personally.
