applicator is an evolution in radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer.
Delivering treatment from inside the breast, SAVI uses multiple catheters to
direct radiation where it is needed most. This unique design allows for
unparalleled dose sculpting ability that minimizes exposure to healthy tissue
and reduces complications, making the benefits of breast brachytherapy available
to more women.
The Oncotype DX test
is a diagnostic test that can help women with some types of breast cancer learn
more about the biological activity of their specific tumor. Along with other
pieces of information, the results from the Oncotype DX test can help women and
their doctors make decisions about whether or not to include chemotherapy in
their treatment plan. It can also help indicate how likely it is that a woman's
cancer may return in the future.
