Long Term Outcomes of A Multicentre Controlled Clinical Trial of Breast Irradiation Using Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the frequency of chronic breast pain about 8 years
after the delivery of the radiation treatment, and to compare the frequency between subjects
that received breast Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and those that received
standard wedge radiation therapy. The cosmetic result, meaning how similar is the treated breast
compared to the non-treated breast, will be assessed. Also, the occurrence of delayed
radiation treatment side effects including tiny red vessels in the skin, breast indurations
(hardening of the skin), skin discoloration, oedema (swelling of the breast), and skin
dryness will be captured.
