Journal Article --- Old month value: Jul
Fifty-three patients had 54 third-body areas irradiated for breast and prostate bone metastases using the third-body irradiation technique during a period of 6 years. These patients were previously treated with chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and limited field irradiation. Seventy percent responded completely and 24% partially. This modality is safe and effective for pain relief.
