The Breast project group, led by Dr. Lori Pierce, Dr. Frank Vicini, and Dr. Jean Moran, works to identify ways to improve breast cancer treatment for patients across the state of Michigan. The group launched in December 2017 with a focus on comparative effectiveness of 3D and IMRT treatment.
Areas of Current Focus:
- Investigate and quantify dosimetric differences between 3D and IMRT treatment planning
- Track and evaluate practice changes in breast cancer treatment over time with respect to dose prescription and boost delivery
- Pilot and establish collection of full DICOM data for MROQC patients
- Identify good practices in breast cancer treatment
