Is Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer Less 'Scary' Than Expected?

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.
