Objective The tumor, node, and metastasis staging system of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) has limitations in predicting prognosis. The aim of this study was to explore the prognostic value of tumor diameter for patients with NPC who were treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy. Study Design Case series with chart review. Setting Affiliated Cancer Hospital of Guangxi Medical University. Subjects and Methods The cases of 137 NPC patients treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy were…

TLDR
The results of DCA supported the point that PTV can help improve the prognostic ability of T-stage and should be added to the TNM staging system.
The prognostic value of volumetric reduction of the target lesions after induction chemotherapy in locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma
We explored whether the volumetric reduction ratio of target lesion after induction chemotherapy (IC) had any prognostic value in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC).

Prognostic value of tumor volume for patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma treated with concurrent chemotherapy and intensity-modulated radiotherapy
TLDR
Primary gross tumor volume is an independent prognostic factor in local control, distant metastasis, disease-free survival, and overall survival in NPC.
Tumor volume is an independent prognostic indicator of local control in nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy
TLDR
Primary tumor volume could predict LRC rate of NPC patients, and the primary tumor volume of 40 ml may be the cut-off, according to retrospectively analyzed nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients.
Is maximum primary tumor diameter still a prognostic factor in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma treated using intensity-modulated radiotherapy?
TLDR
MPTD was an independent prognostic factor in patients with NPC treated using IMRT, and significantly improved the prognostic value of the current T classification criteria for NPC.
Significance of primary tumor volume and T-stage on prognosis in nasopharyngeal carcinoma treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the primary tumor volume had significantly impacted on the prognosis of patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and it is proposed that thePrimary tumor volume should be considered as an additional stage indicator in the new revision of the clinical stage of nasoph throat carcinoma.

Clinical application of tumor volume in advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma to predict outcome
TLDR
Large GTVprn was associated with a significantly poorer local control, lower distant metastasis-free rate, and poorer survival, but overall survival was better after ≧4 cycles of chemotherapy than after less than 4 cycles.
Prognostic significance of maximum primary tumor diameter in nasopharyngeal carcinoma
TLDR
The data suggest that MPTD is an independent prognostic factor in NPC, and incorporation of MPTD might lead to a further refinement of T staging, as well as in patients with a MPTD.

TLDR
The clinical stage, N stage, volume of GTVnx, and chemotherapy were the main prognostic factor for the OS of nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients treated with intensity modulated radiotherapy.
