Catheryn Yashar, MD, a radiation oncologist at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center in La Jolla, Calif., provides an in-depth analysis on published data from the SAVI Collaborative Research Group, including just released 4 year data on acute and late toxicity, local recurrence rates and how strut-based brachytherapy can expand patient eligibility for APBI.

The published data has been presented at several medical conferences in 2012, including the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO), the American Society of Breast Disease (ASBD), and the Breast Cancer Coordinated Care Conference (BC3).
