BARCELONA – Brachytherapy with or without external beam radiation improved survival in patients with early-stage, inoperable endometrial cancer. That’s according to findings of a population-based analysis that looked at data from the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results—SEER database. Oncology Times reporter Sarah Maxwell spoke to author Sahaja Acharya MD, resident physician at Washington University in Saint Louis, who won the ESTRO 2015 Best Junior Presentation Award for the study announced to the Barcelona meeting.
