Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) is an adjuvant treatment in which a large single dose of radiation is delivered during a surgical procedure to resected tumor beds or to an unresectable tumor. This article discusses the implementation of an IORT program and highlights the successful collaboration needed between the OR and radiation oncology departments. A better understanding of IORT in the OR setting will contribute to smooth program implementation.
