Webinar: A Matter of Time: Long vs. Short Radiation Treatments for Breast Cancer

About this webinar:

Watch Dr. Janna Andrews, radiation oncologist at the Northwell Health Cancer Institute discuss radiation treatment options for breast cancer.

A recent New York Times article highlighted two schools of thought around radiation treatment for women with breast cancer who have had lumpectomies: longer treatments (typically five-to-seven weeks in duration) versus shorter treatments (three-to-four weeks of more intense radiation).

In this webinar, Dr. Andrews discusses:

  • Her thoughts on the value of longer and shorter radiation therapy treatments for those with breast cancer, based on her extensive expertise treating these patients
  • The evolution of radiation treatment for patients with breast cancer
  • The importance of an individualized approach to any type of radiation treatment
  • How the team at Northwell Health Cancer Institute evaluates patients for treatment
  • What breast cancer patients need to know when radiation treatment is an option
