Head & Neck Radiotherapy

Radiation is a critical part of treatment for almost all advanced head and neck cancers, and can be delivered alone or combined with chemotherapy before or after surgery. Precise radiation techniques are vital for patients with head and neck tumors, since crucial structures that are often very close to tumors must be avoided.Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) accurately targets tumors while minimizing damage to normal surrounding tissue.
