Study shows tissue marker reduces radiation target volumes, produces many other advantages

These CT images show placement of a 3-D fixed array implanted fiducial (3-D marker) at the time of oncoplastic tumor resection. The original LCTV (LCTVo) was retrospectively re-contoured by the radiation oncologist (LCTVro) and breast surgeon (LCTVbs). Thereafter, both re-contours were combined to create the collaborative LCTV (LCTVc), which required agreement of both the radiation oncologist and breast surgeon. Volume differences between the original LCTV (LCTVo) and the collaborative LCTVc were then evaluated, and demonstrated a mean and median reduction in LCTV.
