Description:

Topic: Abbreviated Partial Breast Radiation Therapy

Speaker: Khanh Nguyen, MD, Bayhealth Radiation Oncology

Bayhealth invites the community to the STEPS to Healthy Aging Lecture Series. The topic for our next event is accelerated partial breast irradiation, a therapy that may change the way early stage breast cancer is treated.
 
Preliminary data suggest that partial breast radiation therapy could be a viable option for some women with breast cancer. Possible benefits may include one week of external beam radiation instead of six weeks, and the ability to spare more normal breast tissue.

Join us as Khanh Nguyen, MD, MA, Bayhealth radiation oncologist, and Dane Thannoo, MMSc, PhD, MEng, DABR, Bayhealth’s Chief Medical Physicist, share insights about this new treatment option for early stage breast cancer.
