Description

At our weekly breast conference, we discuss breast cancer planning and treatment options with our multidisciplinary team. These case presentations and discussions rely on national breast cancer standards (as defined by the NCCN). In this way, we afford best clinical practice for our patients, as well as provide continued medical education at the same time. Both of these essential components of our breast conference aim to bridge the gap between historical clinical practices, and newer cutting edge treatments. Through our case presentations and many lectures series, we aim to maximize the chances that our clinical faculty follow national cancer treatment standards, as well as understand and offer newer cutting edge treatments.

Today's cases involve:

  • Films and Pathology Review
  • Next-step treatment for inflammatory breast cancer
