Abstract

The utilization rate of RT increased from 64.4% in 2011 to 70.3% in 2015. After BCS and mastectomy, 97.3% and 26.1% of the patients received RT, respectively. For patients undergoing BCS and mastectomy, lower age and ER + tumours were associated with higher RT utilisation rates. After mastectomy, also larger tumour sizes, lymph node involvement, grade‐2 and 3 tumours and diagnosis in more recent years were associated with higher RT use.
