Single Dose Theragpy

Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) allows for the delivering of a single dose of radiation during the surgical operation of breast cancer.  This eliminated the need for post-operative radiation therapy. 


Following the surgical extraction of the breast tumor, a high dose of radiation is delivered to the precise area that needs treatment, protecting the surrounding healthy tissues.  Above other advantages, this method offers patients with greater psychological comfort as it eliminates the need to come to the hospital for treatment every day.
