Hi folks.

What are the usual guidelines for radiation therapy for tnbc? 
T2N1M0 
One 8 mm positive node, subsequent axillary clearance showed no further nodes. 
Chemotherapy was administered post mastectomy.
The RO is prescribing chest wall radiation, and not axillary or supraclavicular (is that the right word?)
 Is there a way to look up some guidelines I can compare this to?
