Abstract Efforts nowadays are looking for the tumor itself and organs surrounding it to give high doses to tumor itself with low doses to adjacent organs. The researchers found that the use of a new technology uses x ray techniques can offer some of what they are looking for. It can be used in cases of small distance between the breast skin and the edge of the lumpectomy cavity. The low energy used by x-ray source is an advantage for sparing sensitive organs around the tumor cavity.
