Description:
The purpose of this study is to find out about the effectiveness and safety of a new way of delivering radiation therapy. Standard treatment for you cancer includes radiation therapy. In this study we will give you radiation therapy through a system called Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy is designed to target the regions at risk for a recurrence of breast cancer more precisely than conventional radiation therapy. Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy involves delivering the radiation doses from many angles using many small beams of radiation rather than from one or two directions using large beams of radiation. We believe that this was of delivering radiation therapy will be more effective, but we are still testing this procedure for safety.
