Abstract

BACKGROUND Cervical radiation for head and neck cancer has been associated with an increased incidence of carotid arterial stenosis. Modern radiation therapy delivers higher doses with increasing long-term survival. Accordingly, the prevalence of radiation-associated carotid stenosis may be higher than previously reported. Phase I of this prospective study… (More)
