Advantages of MammoSite

  • Treatment with MammoSite 5-Day Targeted Radiation Therapy can help you get back to your normal life sooner – just 5 days vs. 5-7 weeks.
  • MammoSite places the radiation source inside the lumpectomy cavity (the space left when a tumor is removed). This delivers radiation to the area where cancer is most likely to recur.3
  • Clinical trials for the MammoSite Radiation Therapy System have shown it to be well tolerated, with mild side effects for a short period of time.5
  • The therapy is given on an outpatient basis. No hospital stay is required.
  • 5-year Initial Clinical Trial Results (N=43):6
    • No local recurrences
    • 83.3% of the patients had good/excellent cosmetic results
    • 100% of patients in the initial clinical trial would recommend MammoSite to a friend or family member.
    • 100% of patients in the initial clinical trial would use MammoSite again if they had to do it over.
