Background. Methods currently available to prevent and manage xerostomia which caused by radiotherapy in patients with head and neck caner have limited efficacy. Some studies suggest that acupuncture may be beneficial. Objectives. The authors evaluated the preventive and therapeutic effect of acupuncture for radiation-induced xerostomia among patients with head and neck cancer. Methods. PUBMED, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, CBM, CAJD, Wan Fang database, and VIP Database for Chinese Technical Periodi...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The planning process in radiotherapy (RT) typically involves the acquisition of a unique set of CT images - and eventually of functional images - which is used for delineation of target volumes (TV) and organs at risk (OAR) and for dose calculation. Restricting the delineation and dose calculation solely on pre-treatment images is an oversimplification as it is only a snapshot of the patient's anatomy. The objectives of the present study were (1) to assess the consequence...

Background Long-term locoregional control in locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) remains challenging. While recent years have seen various approaches to improve outcome by intensification of treatment schedules through introduction of novel induction and combination chemotherapy regimen and altered fractionation regimen, patient tolerance to higher treatment intensities is limited by accompanying side-effects. Combined radioimmunotherapy with cetuximab as well a...
