TARGIT-B: an international randomised controlled trial to compare targeted intra-operative radiotherapy boost with conventional external beam radiotherapy boost after lumpectomy for breast cancer in women with a high risk of local recurrence

This new technique delivers radiotherapy to the tissues at highest risk of recurrence - the tumour bed - at the time of surgery in a single session.
