Radiotherapy has a good track record in the treatment of NPC, yet the late toxicity profile and local failure rate for locally advanced disease remain a concern. Modern RT techniques incorporating IMRT and IGRT have widened our potential in treating NPC more effectively, and shall be regarded as the standard of care. Out of the various dose fractionation regimens in IMRT, 70 Gy in 35 fractions or the mini-SIB proves to be safe in combination with chemotherapy, but any further attempt of dose… CONTINUE READING
