Radiology techniques have improved
The advances seen in radiation technology has also conferred shorter yet still effective radiation courses to date. Now, many courses only require 3 weeks of radiation compared to the conventional 6-week course in the past. Radiation therapies today also result in much less damage to healthy tissues, something that some women do not realize today. There are a lot of changes in our scientific advances making radiation technology more attractive for any patient who may benefit from this potentially life-saving therapy.
