The purpose of this study is to compare two approaches to radiation therapy: One therapy would entail a higher daily dose during the course of three weeks with a boost given on each day of radiation therapy. The other therapy would entail standard whole breast radiation followed by a boost given on separate days extending over the course of six to seven weeks.
