To assess the dosimetric effect of using interpolated contours in planning intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for advanced T-stage nasopharyngeal carcinoma. The present study focused on T3-T4 tumours where the proximity of targets to neurological organs poses a stringent test on the feasibility of such an approach. Contours of targets and organs… CONTINUE READING
