To assess the role of interstitial brachytherapy alone compared to whole breast irradiation in a defined low-risk group of invasive breast cancer or ductal carcinoma in situ concerning local failure (all ipsilateral local recurrences) to affirm the hypothesis that local control rates in each arm are equivalent.

Breast cancer patients at Sentara RMH Hahn Cancer Center who are treated with accelerated partial breast irradiation will be monitored over a period of 10 years. From this group of patient...
This phase II trial studies the side effects of three-dimensional conformal external-beam photon radiotherapy (3D-CRT), proton, or brachytherapy accelerated partial breast irradiation (APB...
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility to deliver PBI before the lumpectomy is performed. By administering the PBI before the lumpectomy, a smaller volume of breast tissue...
This study is to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of accelerated partial breast irradiation (ABPI) with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in low-risk breast cancer treat with ...
To determine if Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation, using 3D CRT, is as effective as Whole Breast Irradiation following breast conserving surgery in women with an new histological diag...
To improve efficiency, convenience, and cost, a prospective phase II trial was initiated to evaluate accelerated partial breast irradiation delivered with noninvasive image-guided breast brachytherapy...
The conventionally fractionated partial breast irradiation (PBI) IMPORT LOW trial represents the perfect example of how an adequate selection of patients led to a minimal local relapse rate for patien...
This Editorial Comment refers to the articles "The role of cone-beam breast-CT for breast cancer detection relative to breast density" by Wienbeck S et al, Eur Radiol. 2017 Dec;27(12):5185-5195 and "D...
External beam radiotherapy is a common form of treatment for breast cancer. Among patients and across different breast cancer subtypes, the response to radiation is heterogeneous. Radiation-induced bi...
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
