We’re shrinking radiation’s impact on your life.
Hypofractionated Radiation Therapy
At most hospitals today, women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer can expect radiation therapy that consists of up to 30 treatments spread out over five or more weeks. This standard course of treatment can have a major impact on cancer—and unfortunately, due to scheduling of appointments and side effects like fatigue, your day-to-day life.
But now, working with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance, the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute is treating some breast cancer patients with a new technique called hypofractionated radiation therapy that provides the same effectiveness in half the time. So patients can finish their course of treatment in as little as 15 treatments.
Using this innovative new form of radiation, we’re helping women fight breast cancer and return to their regular lives faster than ever before possible.
