Controversy exists regarding the optimal margin width in breast-conserving surgery for invasive breast cancer. In 2014 SSO and ASTRO published a Consensus Guideline Margins for Breast-Conserving Surgery with Whole Breast Irradiation in Stage I and II Invasive Breast Cancer. This webinar will help surgeons to understand how the implementation of the recommendations within the Consensus Guideline Margins for Breast-Conserving Surgery with Whole Breast Irradiation in Stage I and II Invasive Breast Cancer may affect their practice and patient care.
