20 weeks too long to wait for RT after BCT?

Article in the JCO from Vancouver, finding worse outcomes in patients for whom RT was delayed beyond 20 weeks post surgery for breast conserving therapy (BCT). Note that this was in patients not recieving chemotherapy!

HR was near 2 for LR and breast cancer specific survival when RT start was delayed beyond 20 weeks.
