Abstract

A patient has been referred to you for possible photoradiation therapy. She has breast cancer, treated in the past by bilateral mastectomy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy. It is now recurrent to the anterior, lateral, and posterior chest wall in the form of several hundred subcutaneous and cutaneous nodules ranging in diameter from 1 to 10 mm. We face two basis questions: (1) What is the goal of treatment? (2) What type of light source and light delivery system will best help us to reach that goal?
