PURPOSE To determine if sonographic localization of the breast lumpectomy site is feasible and useful in boost planning. METHODS AND MATERIALS The operative beds following lumpectomy were localized by ultrasound in 22 patients (15-infiltrating ductal, 7-ductal carcinoma in situ; size: .4-2.0 cm). Twelve patients had two ultrasound examinations on different days for a total of 34 examinations. Twenty-one patients had their course of boost electron therapy planned using ultrasound to guide… CONTINUE READING
