Dr. Ackerman on Non-Invasive Breast Cancer Treatment, AccuBoost:
“The benefits of the AccuBoost Technique are two-fold. From a clinical perspective, it allows us to deliver an extremely accurate boost dose of radiation to the lumpectomy site. The second benefit is for our patients; they experience fewer side effects and have better cosmesis when compared to traditional external beam radiation.”
