June 22, 2017

“Our study results can be used not only to inform patient and clinician decision-making regarding the best methods of screening after breast conservation therapy and radiotherapy, but also to develop more personalized screening guidelines and recommendations for women at increased risk for breast cancer,” Woo Kyung Moon, MD, professor of radiology and chief of breast imaging at Seoul National University College of Medicine, and colleagues wrote.
