Abstract

BACKGROUND: In the United States, about 50% to 66% of women undergoing breast conservation surgery for cancer undergo subsequent mastectomy for positive margins on initial lumpectomy. This is despite the fact that screening mammography has resulted in a decrease in the size of newly diagnosed breast cancer to
