Prone Breast Radiation
Marilyn N. Ling, M.D.
Associate Professor of Clinical Radiation Oncology

We're the only place in Rochester that offers prone breast radiation, treatment of the patient on her stomach so that by the simplicity of gravity, the breast hangs away from the chest wall, and we can more safely treat the breast with avoidance of the lung and the heart, decrease the degree of the skin reaction, and sometimes even shorten the treatment course length, how many weeks one gets daily treatment.
