«Vraiment satisfaites de tout le procédé»

In most cases, it is in the tumor bed that the success or failure of a breast cancer operation is decided. After the excision of the tumor, the risk of restarting the tumor is greatest in the transition zone between the affected tissues and the healthy tissues. It is for this reason that radiotherapy exactly targets this area of ??the breast. Most of the time, however, conventional radiotherapy takes place several weeks after the procedure itself: the tumor bed is often not precisely achieved. With INTRABEAM, Carl Zeiss's new irradiation device, irradiation is possible directly after the operation. Early studies have shown that the risk of relapse is extremely low.
