Purpose/Objective(s)

The NIBB technique is a novel non-invasive but targeted method of delivering partial breast irradiation. We established a multi-institutional registry to evaluate feasibility, safety, and efficacy of this technique across various practice settings.

The report’s co-authors included researchers from prestigious centers like Watson Clinic, UCSD and Lynn Cancer Center in Boca Raton. The report detailed superb cosmetic outcomes (98% Good/Excellent) and very low skin toxicity across all practice settings.
