Accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) is becoming an option for patients with low-risk breast cancer. The current practice is 38.5 Gy in 10 fractions b.i.d. over 5 days. This fractionation has a higher bioequivalent dose compared to the standard schedule. We report on preliminary results of once-daily APBI in patients treated with TomoTherapy®.
