Breast cancer represents the malignancy most widely treated by radiation oncologists. As a result, it has been the subject of numerous studies and practices have evolved over time. An array of creative questions has been posed within the field of breast radiation oncology with the goals of improving cancer outcomes, decreasing treatment related toxicity, and improving quality of life for breast cancer patients and survivors.
In this Special Issue of Current Oncology, we welcome the input from leaders in the field of radiation. Contributors may wish to explore one of the topics identified by the editors (e.g., radiation dose de-escalation, boost techniques, partial breast irradiation, re-irradiation, nodal management, onco-plastics, the treatment of oligometastatic and oligoprogressive disease, incorporating bio-signatures into radiotherapeutic management, testing the limits of hypofractionation, addressing disparities in breast RT, new technologies such as proton and MR guidance, etc.) or propose alternative concepts which they deem valuable. In so doing, we hope to produce a volume which is scholarly, thought-provoking, and clinically relevant.
