PURPOSE For intensity-modulated radiotherapy of nasopharyngeal cancer, accurate dose delivery is crucial to the success of treatment. This study aimed to evaluate the significance of daily image-guided patient setup corrections and to quantify the parotid gland volume and dose variations for nasopharyngeal cancer patients using helical tomotherapy megavoltage computed tomography (CT). METHODS AND MATERIALS Five nasopharyngeal cancer patients who underwent helical tomotherapy were selected… CONTINUE READING
