BACKGROUND Research has reported relationships between 3-dimensional (3D) radiation dose to head and neck structures and consequential swallowing/nutritional outcomes. However, this evidence is preliminary. The current study aimed to identify which reported dose constraints identified functional impairment at 6 months posttreatment. METHODS Dose constraints with reported relationships to swallowing and nutrition were identified through a systematic literature review. Dose-volume histograms… CONTINUE READING
