PURPOSE Anatomic changes and positional variability during intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for head and neck cancer can lead to clinically significant dosimetric changes. We report our single-institution experience using an adaptive protocol and correlate these changes with anatomic and positional changes during treatment. METHODS AND MATERIALS Twenty-three sequential head and neck IMRT patients underwent serial computed tomography (CT) scans during their radiation course. After… CONTINUE READING
