Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors present a new method to locate the tumor bed after lumpectomy. The method relies on accumulation of Ga-67 at the surgical site. This technique was useful in identifying the tumor bed in six candidates for breast conserving surgery and radiation therapy. This method may be applicable in other soft tissue malignancies that require postoperative radiation.
