Radiation Therapy for Head and Neck Cancers

The standard treatment of head and neck cancers often includes combined modality therapy involving surgery followed by postoperative radiation or organ preservation with definitive chemotherapy and radiation, without the need for surgery.
Advances in image-guided radiation therapy have allowed us to deliver more intense doses of radiation in a more focused area of the body, increasing the treatment’s effectiveness against cancer and minimizing its impact on surrounding structures, including critical structures such as salivary glands, spinal cord, brainstem and swallowing muscles.
