Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
Patients must fulfill all of the following criteria for admission to study:

- Women aged >= 50 years.

- Histologically confirmed diagnosis of invasive breast carcinoma of non-lobular
histology.

- Bilateral mammograms performed within 6 months prior to registration.

- Treated with breast conserving surgery (primary excision or re-excision) with negative
radial resection margins of >= 2 mm* for both the invasive and if present, associated
intraductal tumour.

*Patients with superficial or deep resection margin of < 2 mm are eligible if surgery
has removed all of the intervening breast tissue from the subcutaneous tissue to the
pectoralis fascia.

- Unifocal tumour measuring = 20 mm in maximum microscopic dimension.

- Negative nodal status determined by sentinel node biopsy, axillary dissection, or for
women > 70 years of age, clinical examination.

- No evidence of distant metastasis.

- Assessed by surgeon and radiation oncologist to be suitable for breast conserving
therapy.

- Ability to tolerate protocol therapy.

- Protocol therapy must commence no later than 12 weeks from the last surgical procedure
or 8 weeks from the last dose of chemotherapy.

- Availability for long-term follow-up.

- Women of child-bearing potential must use adequate contraception during RT.

- Written informed consent.

Key exclusion criteria
Patients who fulfill any of the following criteria are not eligible for admission to study:

- Multifocal or multicentric tumours.

- Clinical or pathologic evidence of any of the following tumour features: extension to
chest wall (excluding pectoralis muscle); oedema (including peau d'orange) or
ulceration of skin; satellite skin nodules confined to the same breast; and
inflammatory carcinoma.

- Presence of extensive intraductal component (ductal carcinoma in situ occupying > 25%
of the primary invasive tumour and present adjacent to the primary tumour).

- Node-positive breast cancer determined by sentinel node biopsy, axillary dissection,
or in women > 70 years of age, clinical examination.

- Inability to localise surgical cavity on CT scans with no evidence of a surgical
cavity, seroma or surgical clips delineating the tumour bed.

- Treatment target volume estimated to occupy > 25% of the ipsilateral whole breast
volume.

- Synchronous or metachronous bilateral invasive or intraductal breast cancer.

- Locally recurrent breast cancer.

- Ipsilateral breast implant.

- Serious non-malignant disease that precludes definitive surgical or radiation
treatment (e.g. scleroderma, systemic lupus erythematosus,
cardiovascular/pulmonary/renal disease).

- Previous or concomitant malignancies except non-melanoma skin cancer, carcinoma in
situ of the cervix, and invasive carcinoma of the colon, thyroid, cervix, or
endometrium treated five years prior to study entry.

- Women who are pregnant or lactating.

- Psychiatric or addictive disorders that preclude obtaining informed consent or
adherence to protocol

Summary
Brief summary
Hypothesis:

In selected women with node-negative invasive breast cancer treated with breast conserving
surgery, postoperative accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) limited to the region of
the tumour bed delivered by 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D CRT) is technically
feasible and reproducible with acceptable treatment toxicity, cosmetic outcome, and local
control rate in a multicentre trial.
