Practice guideline for the breast conservation therapy in the management of invasive breast carcinoma.


This is the second of two articles reprinted with permission from: Practice guideline for breast conservation therapy in the management of invasive breast carcinoma. In: Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards. Reston, VA: American College of Radiology;2006:443-468. In this reprinting "G" in Section IV is available in the Online version only. For Section VI please refer to the first publication of ductal carcinoma in-situ (J Am Coll Surg 2007:205:145-161). Parts of this article have been shortened for brevity. The full article is available through the American College of Radiology. The American College of Radiology, with more than 30,000 members, is the principal organization of radiologists, radiation oncologists, and clinical medical physicists in the United States. The College is a nonprofit professional society whose primary purposes are to advance the science of radiology, improve radiologic services to the patient, study the socioeconomic aspects of the practice of radiology, and encourage continuing education for radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, and persons practicing in allied professional fields. The American College of Radiology will periodically define new practice guidelines and technical standards for radiologic practice to help advance the science of radiology and to improve the quality of service to patients throughout the United States. Existing practice guidelines and technical standards will be reviewed for revision or renewal, as appropriate, on their fifth anniversary or sooner, if indicated. Each practice guideline and technical standard, representing a policy statement by the College, has undergone a thorough consensus process in which it has been subjected to extensive review, requiring the approval of the Commission on Quality and Safety as well as the ACR Board of Chancellors, the ACR Council Steering Committee, and the ACR Council. The practice guidelines and technical standards recognize that the safe and effective use of diagnostic and therapeutic radiology requires specific training, skills, and techniques, as described in each document. Reproduction or modification of the published practice guideline and technical standard by those entities not providing these services is not authorized.
