Possibilities of intraoperative radiation therapy in the treatment of breast cancer patients

Due to the success of neoadjuvant systemic therapy and modern approaches to the surgical treatment of breast cancer,
the proportion of organ-preserving operations has increased significantly. Radiation therapy reduces the risk of local
recurrence of breast cancer after breast preservation, but entails undesirable consequences of exposure to surrounding
tissues. The popularity and low frequency of side effects of accelerated partial irradiation allows us to consider it in some
cases as an alternative to traditional remote irradiation in breast cancer patients.
