We evaluated the efficacy and safety of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for patients with head and neck tumors. From April 2005 through April 2008, 34 patients with head and neck tumors were treated with CyberKnife SBRT. Twenty-one of them had prior radiotherapy. Treatment sites were orbit (n = 7), cervical lymph nodes (n = 6), nasopharynx (n = 5), oropharynx (n = 4) and others (n = 12). The prescribed dose ranged from 19.5 to 42 Gy (median, 30 Gy) in 3-8 fractions for consecutive… CONTINUE READING
