Prof Alphonse Taghian speaks to ecancer at BGICC 2019 in Cairo about the indication for breast radiation after neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

He discusses the issue of 'radiation or no radiation' after neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgery that removes the lymph node.

Prof Taghian explains that a phase 3 trial is currently researching this but that he believes that it is better to be safer and apply radiation.
