Abstract

In early breast cancer, adjuvant moderately hypofractionated regimens are recommended for both whole breast, partial breast and locoregional irradiation which abbreviates the overall treatment time, as argued in this review. Gating is recommended as well as the use of a simultaneous integrated boost when indicated. A tangential field set-up is standard, however, for challenging cases volumetric modulated arc therapy techniques, or referral for proton therapy, may be considered. In the metastatic setting, stereotactic radiotherapy is a promising treatment option for oligometastatic disease.
