BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To determine potential improvements in treatment outcome for patients with hypopharyngeal carcinoma, T4N0M0, using proton and intensity modulated photon radiotherapy (IMRT) compared to a standard 3D conformal radiotherapy treatment (3D-CRT) in terms of local tumour control probability, TCP, and normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) for the spinal cord and the parotid glands using. PATIENTS AND METHODS Using the three-dimensional treatment-planning system, Helax… CONTINUE READING
