Study supports breast cancer brachytherapy:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Brachytherapy provides an effective treatment for breast cancer, a US study of 199 women with early stages of the disease has shown. "Accelerated partial breast irradiation with interstitial brachytherapy techniques, either low-dose rate or high-dose rate, appears to produce five-year results comparable to conventional breast conservation therapy employing whole breast external beam radiation," said study leader, Peter Yale Chen. Dr Chen, of the William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, presented the findings at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology meeting in New Orleans last week.
