Accelerated partial breast irradiation can be applied by means of different techniques. It <br />offers an opportunity for reducing the treatment duration considerably and harbours the <br />potential for less exposure of healthy tissue to higher radiation doses. However, evidence <br />issued from randomized trials is limited. European and American experts call our attention <br />to the potential dangers of widespread implementation of these techniques without any <br />long-term data on outcome and ask for complete information of patients on the potential <br />hazards and risks if accelerated partial breast irradiation is used instead of whole breast <br />irradiation.

InnovatIve technologIes In radIatIon oncology SUMMARY : At present, radiation oncology is again flourishing thanks to the development of highly accurate techniques as intensity modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiation therapy and hadrontherapy. These therapeutic modalities are made possible by the advent of image guided radiation therapy and respiratory gating that allows a better patient repositioning during the irradiation and between fractions. Nowadays, thanks to these recent technological advances, one can more easily conceive dose escalation, hypofractionation and combined treatment of radiation with sensitizing drugs and this together with a better protection of normal tissue aiming at, simultaneously, improved tumour control and better quality of life. This article describes these innovative technologies that, when integrated to other anti-tumoral therapeutic modalities, seem to be very promising. Keywords : - [less ▲]
