Abstract

Za delno obsevanje dojke se v zadnjem desetletju povečuje zanimanje in je predmet številnih raziskav. V primerjavi s standardnim obsevanjem, ki lahko traja 5–7 tednov, je njegova prednost predvsem v krajšem zdravljenju, ki traja le 1–3 tedne. Kot že ime pove, se po operaciji obseva le manjši del dojke in sicer področje ležišča tumorja z varnostnim robom. Zaenkrat se na takšen način zdravi bolnice le znotraj nadzorovanih kliničnih raziskav, izven tega pa le kot možnost dopolnilnega obsevalnega zdravljenja za skrbno izbrano skupino bolnic.

Abstract (Eng)

Throughout the last decade, partial breast irradiation has grown increasingly interesting and been the subject of numerous studies. Compared to standard irradiation which can take anywhere from 5 to 7 weeks, it bears the advantage of shorter treatment that lasts only from 1 to 3 weeks. As the term itself suggests, only a small part of the breast is irradiated following the surgical procedure, namely the area of the tumor bed and the surgical margin. For now, this method is only used in treating patients within the frameworks of controlled clinical research, while outside these frameworks it is only available to a carefully selected group of individuals as an optional supplementary irradiation treatment.
