Heart dose in breast-RT
I have been reading the ASTRO guideline on breast cancer and they make the point that heart dose should be minimized by blocking it out of the tangent fields when treating the breast. Interestingly a similar question was asked on the mednet and the posted reply also states the same. It seems that people think we should do EVERYTHING possible to limit heart dose to 1-2 Gy. I am not comfortable with that. I have several patients whose anatomy prohibits adequate coverage of the breast, if I... Heart dose in breast-RT (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Probably too late to submit an AMCAS right?
I scored a 499 (124/123/124/128) August 1st and then I received my new scores yesterday of a 512 (126/130/126/130). I got 2 interviews with the 499 for DO schools already. I thought I would not get anything close enough for MD so I never completed an AMCAS. My gpa is not impressive though: cGPA: 3.51 and sGPA: 3.298 (or probably 3.3 with AMCAS).

ATM Variants of Unknown Significance and Radiation
As MyRisks are being ordered with greater frequency on breast cancer patients, I've seen a couple young ladies with ATM VUSs and don't really know what to do about radiation recommendations. The clinical information states that they are "probably benign" but I'm unconvinced when I'm looking at a 20-something year old with stage III breast cancer. Obviously bad cancer, that I would normally reflexively recommend post mastectomy radiation, but is that placing excess risk of second malignancy...
