Following early results of recent studies of intra-operative radiotherapy (IORT) in the adjuvant treatment of patients with early breast cancer, the clinical utility of IORT is a subject of much recent debate within the breast oncology community. This review describes the intra-operative techniques available, the potential indications, and the evidence to date pertaining to local control and toxicity. We also discuss any implications for current practice and future research.
