Breast cancer survival improved when radiotherapy guidelines followed

A retrospective study confirmed that adherence to consensus guidelines for adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) in the treatment of patients with primary breast cancer improves survival. The results, published in Annals of Oncology (2014;25:628-632, PMID:245185935), revealed that patients who received international guideline-adherent adjuvant RT (GAART) had significantly improved rates of survival compared with patients who did not receive GAART.
