OBJECTIVE To evaluate volumetric changes of parotid glands (PGs) during intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in head and neck cancer patients. METHODS During IMRT all patients underwent kilovolt cone-beam CT (CBCT) scans to verify the set-up positioning in a protocol study. On each CBCT scan, the PGs were retrospectively contoured and evaluated with a dose-volume histogram. RESULTS From February to June 2011, 10 patients were enrolled. 140 CBCT scans were registered (280 PGs): for each… CONTINUE READING
