"This device helps us to better localize the surgical bed, particularly in patients who may have a delay in radiation treatment after surgery and where the surgical site may not be so evident," says Karen Godette, MD, associate professor of radiation oncology, Emory University School of Medicine and medical director of the radiation oncology department at Emory University Hospital Midtown. "It is also especially good in patients who have oncologic breast reductions with tumor removal, because we can identify the tumor bed despite tissue rearrangement. With more accurate delineation, many times comes a reduction in volume of normal surrounding structures that are treated."

Godette is also a Winship Cancer Institute member.
