Evaluation of radiation-induced changes to parotid glands following conventional radiotherapy in patients with nasopharygneal carcinoma.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Xerostomia is a common post-radiotherapy (post-RT) complication in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients. This study evaluated the relation of post-RT parotid gland changes with the dose received. METHODS Data from 18 NPC patients treated by radiotherapy between 1997 and 2001 were collected.
