The University of Kansas Cancer Center now offers intraoperative radiation therapy, or IORT, for small, early-stage breast tumors. IORT is a single radiation treatment given at the time of lumpectomy, following tumor removal. Having IORT allows patients to avoid conventional breast radiation therapy, which typically starts a month after cancer surgery and requires daily treatments for up to 6 weeks.
