Six Weeks of Breast Radiation Reduced to One Week!

Springfield News-Sun, November 04, 2005
Six weeks of breast cancer treatment can be reduced to one week with a new treatment now available at the Springfield Regional Cancer Center. The cancer center administered its first MammoSite radiation treatment on Tuesday. The treatment sends high-dose radiation directly to the site of a removed tumor. The concentrated dose reduces treatment time and avoids sending radiation through healthy tissue.
