Radiation therapy is a powerful tool in the fight against breast cancer, but for patients with tumors in their left breast, treatment exposes the heart to radiation and increases the risk of ischemic heart disease later in life. That’s all changed, thanks to a new technique that uses breath monitoring to deliver radiation only when the tumor is far from the heart. Watch the WUSA 9 interview with Radiation #Oncologist   Dr. Susan Stinson to learn how active breath control can make treatment more safe.
