We examined the hazard function adjusted for adherence to surveillance mammography to examine variations in LR risk and the effect of RT over time.MethodsCrude hazard estimates for the development of LR in a population cohort of DCIS treated by BCS  ± RT were computed. Multivariable extended Cox models and hazard plots were used to examine the association between receipt of RT and risk of each outcome adjusted for baseline covariates and adherence to mammography.ResultsPopulation cohort includes 3262 women treated by BCS; 1635 received RT. Median follow-up was 13  years. LR developed in 364 women ...
