PURPOSE To present preliminary results of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) with the simultaneous modulated accelerated radiotherapy (SMART) boost technique in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS AND MATERIALS Twenty patients who underwent IMRT for nondisseminated NPC at the Asan Medical Center between September 2001 and December 2003 were prospectively evaluated. Intensity-modulated radiotherapy was delivered with the "step and shoot" SMART technique at prescribed… Expand
Clinical study on simultaneous modulated accelerated radiotherapy and concurrent chemotherapy for locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma
TLDR
SMART technique provides an excellent opportunity to spare normal tissue and is probably more biologically effective thanCombination of single cisplatin was more tolerable and Acute mucositis and pharyngitis were more frequently observed in the FP group than in the cisPlatin group. Expand
Treatment of nasopharyngeal carcinoma using simultaneous modulated accelerated radiation therapy via helical tomotherapy: a phase II study
TLDR
Smart delivered via the helical tomotherapy technique appears to be associated with an acceptable acute toxicity profile and favorable short-term outcomes for patients with NPC. Expand
The Effect of Simultaneous Modulated Accelerated Radiotherapy and Concurrent Chemotherapy on Locally Advanced Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
TLDR
SMART technique provides an excellent opportunity to spare normal tissues and may be more effective biologically and concurrent chemotherapy with DDP can be well tolerated. Expand

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical results of our adaptive radiation therapy scheme of a two-step intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) method for nasopharyngeal cancerExpand
IMRT with simultaneous integrated boost and concurrent chemotherapy for nasopharyngeal cancer: plan evaluation and treatment outcome.
TLDR
Intensity-modulated radiation therapy with simultaneous integrated boost with concurrent chemotherapy is a safe and effective treatment modality for nasopharyngeal cancer and helical tomotherapy has a dosimetric advantage over step-and-shoot intensity-modulation radiation therapy in a clinical setting. Expand
Feasibility and efficacy study of weekly cisplatin with concurrent intensity-modulated radiation therapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma: preliminary results.
The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and efficacy of a weekly cisplatin 40 mg/m(2) regimen in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma treated concurrently with definitiveExpand
Phase I/II study of induction chemotherapy plus concurrent chemotherapy and SMART-IMRT-based radiotherapy in locoregionally-advanced nasopharyngeal cancer
TLDR
SMART-IMRT plus cisplatin and 5-FU chemotherapy showed promising activity with manageable toxicity and is a feasible regimen and improves locoregional disease control. Expand

TLDR
Stereotactic radiotherapy boost after EBRT provides excellent local control for patients with NPC, and improved target delineation and dose homogeneity of radiation delivery for both EbrT and SRT is important to avoid long-term complications. Expand
Late course accelerated hyperfractionated radiotherapy of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (LCAF).
TLDR
With this treatment schedule, patients' tolerance was good, local control and 5 year survivals were better than conventional fractionation schedules, and radiation-related late complications did not increase, as 5-year survival rates ofventional fractionation radiotherapy were only 58%. Expand

TLDR
The pattern of primary site failure within the target volume suggests locally advanced T stage disease may require a higher biologic dose to gross tumor. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that chemoradiotherapy is superior to radiotherapy alone for patients with advanced nasopharyngeal cancers with respect to PFS and overall survival. Expand
Failure of a 3D conformal boost to improve radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
TLDR
Intensity modulated radiation therapy achieves better conformal distributions than conventional 3D planning, allowing dose escalation and increased normal tissue sparing, and these results are comparable to outcomes reported with conventional radiation techniques for similarly staged patients.

TLDR
Hyperfractionation and accelerated fractionation with concomitant boost are more efficacious than standard fractionation for locally advanced head and neck cancer. Expand
Accelerated fractionation (AF) compared to conventional fractionation (CF) improves loco-regional control in the radiotherapy of advanced head and neck cancers: results of the EORTC 22851 randomized trial.
TLDR
This trial shows that accelerated radiotherapy improves loco-regional control in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas and a less toxic scheme should be investigated and documented before using accelerate radiotherapy as a standard regimen of curative radiotherapy for head and head cancers. Expand
The potential for sparing of parotids and escalation of biologically effective dose with intensity-modulated radiation treatments of head and neck cancers: a treatment design study.
TLDR
IMRT has the potential to significantly improve radiotherapy of HN cancers by reducing normal tissue dose and simultaneously allowing escalation of dose, and was found to improve with increasing number of beams, up to 9 beams. Expand

TLDR
Lowering the cranial border of the Level II lymph nodes from C1 to C2, in the case of bilateral elective neck irradiation, could be considered on the contralateral side when the risk of metastasis on that side is very low. Expand
