Dr Frank Vicini - St Joseph Mercy Oakland, Pontiac, USA

Dr Frank Vicini speaks to ecancer at SABCS 2018 about the equivalence test looking at partial breast irradiation and whole breast irradiation.

He explains that patients were randomised into the two arms and followed up over 10 years.

Dr Vicini reports that while the results did not quite meet 'equivalence', the difference was only 0.7%, meaning a very slim difference over a 10 year period.
