Abstract

Partial breast irradiation (PBI) when added to lumpectomy demonstrates equivalent local recurrence and survival when compared to whole breast radiation. However, PBI can be delivered in much shorter time (5 days as compared to 6 weeks) and even intraoperatively as an one time dose. This article describes the many alternative techniques available for delivering PBI.
