AVON LAKE, Ohio -- The Cleveland Clinic is now using a new procedure that gives the radiation in one dose.

Joanne Duffy learned she had breast cancer by a fluke. She was having stent surgery for a clogged heart artery when a cat scan picked up a lump in her breast.

It was early stage breast cancer and she qualified for a new type of treatment that combines surgery and radiation together. Instead of six weeks of radiation, Joanne had one dose during surgery.
