abstract

  • Effect of RT on IBTR risk is influenced by both margin width and number of involved ducts at nearest margin. Patients with higher volume of disease near the margin derive a greater benefit from the addition of RT. Despite margins of >or=10 mm, the risk of IBTR remains substantial in patients with DCIS.
