The objective of this paper is to give some practical landmarks for the delineation of target volumes and organs at risk in Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy for Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma. This delineation, drawn from anatomo-clinical data, natural history of the disease and radiological pre-treatment evaluation, seems to be easier to define than the delineation of other head and neck cancer localisations (oropharynx and oral cavity for example). Experience inside national and international… CONTINUE READING
