A diagnosis of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) can be confusing for patients. DCIS is the presence of abnormal cells inside a milk duct in one or both breasts. While DCIS itself is not life threatening, having DCIS can increase the risk of developing invasive breast cancer later in life. Most women who are diagnosed with DCIS will be recommended treatment. A typical treatment program would involve breast conserving surgery followed by radiation therapy.

Now there is a test available that predicts if radiation therapy will be beneficial. DCISionRT is a precision medicine test that provides information about a patient’s biological risk profile, empowering them to make a more informed decision about their treatment.

The DCISionRT test is:

  • conducted overseas in its entirety; and
  • not approved by the TGA and, is not approved for use in Australia.

Health care practitioners should satisfy themselves as to the relative merits and appropriateness of the test in determining whether or not to recommend it to their patient. Extensive research and findings can be accessed here.

What is DCISionRT®?

DCISionRT®- the only precision medicine test to predict radiation therapy benefit for women with DCIS 1

DCISionRT® is a test that looks at the likelihood of a patient’s Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) recurring after surgery, the risk of the disease spreading, and the impact of radiation therapy in reducing that risk.

DCISionRT assists patients and their doctor to select treatment based on the biology of the tumour, in addition to the traditional clinical and pathology factors.
