Purpose:

This study delivers radiation therapy to any residual breast tissue and the chest wall plus lymph node areas around the breast. These lymph node areas are under the arm, around the collar bone, and under the sternum (breastbone).


Study summary:

IMRT treatment uses a computer-controlled x-ray (CT) to deliver radiation beams at several different angles and strengths to deliver precise doses to the regions at risk for recurrence of breast cancer while reducing or sparing the dose to critical structures (heart, lungs) and nearby normal tissue.
