rent treatment for early-stage disease while attempting to increase convenience, limit invasiveness, decrease toxicity and improve cosmesis compared to other methods of radiation treatment.

"In particular, we believe a very abbreviated, non-invasive, outpatient treatment would be considered a favorable option to underserved populations of women living in more remote areas for whom longer courses of treatment pose a barrier," said Robert Timmerman, M.D., professor of Radiation Oncology at UTSW and lead author of the ongoing study.
