(WVVA) – Some patients treated with radiation for early stage breast cancer may be at an increased risk for heart disease according to researchers.

The study found women who underwent radiation on the left-side while laying face up had the highest heart risk.

These risks were reduced when left-side treated women laid face down.

The lowest risks were among women treated on the right side, away from the heart.
