- The use of Intrabeam can be indicated in the early stages, which can help preserve the breast and have fewer side effects than external beam radiation.
- This treatment can prevent patients from having to go up to five continuous weeks to receive radiation therapy as in conventional treatment.
In recent years, breast cancer treatment options have sought to replace radical surgical methods with less invasive therapies that preserve the breast and reduce side effects.
Intraoperative radiation therapy with Intrabeam is an adjunct in surgery that replaces conventional external radiation therapy. It is an innovative, safe, and precise alternative that can be indicated in early stages, which can help preserve the breast and have fewer side effects than external radiation therapy.
Intrabeam is applied immediately after removal of the tumor using a single dose in the surgical site of the affected breast, which allows the sterilization of the tumor’s location to prevent its reappearance and spread to other tissues or organs. Additionally, it has been shown to improve cosmetic results and patients report less postoperative pain compared to other treatments.
One of the great advantages of this treatment is that it can prevent the patients from going up to five continuous weeks to receive radiation therapy as in conventional treatment.
