This trial studies how well photoacoustic imaging works in measuring tumors and normal tissue in patients with head and neck cancer. Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) is a low-risk imaging method that provides information about the oxygenation of tissues using a combination of light and ultrasound techniques. This study may help doctors determine if PAI is correlated with clinical responses of both tumor (for example: shrinking, swelling or disappearing) and normal tissues (for example: skin redness, dry mouth, appearance of sores, healing of skin or mucosa). If there is a correlation with clinical responses, then doctors may develop PAI as method for measuring response to earlier treatment.
I. Define the feasibility of the current photoacoustic imaging (PAI) technology in head and neck (H&N) cancer patients.
I. Define the utility of the current PAI in H&N cancer patients.
PART I: Patients undergo PAI before the start of chemoradiation therapy, weekly during 7 weeks of chemoradiation, and again 3-4 months after completion of chemoradiation therapy.
PART II (CANCER-FREE WITH XEROSTOMIA): Patients undergo PAI at baseline, up to twice during acupuncture-like transcutaneous nerve stimulation (ALTENS) therapy, once after ALTENS, and at 3-6 months follow up.

Nocturnal enuresis is an infrequent uncontrolled voiding during sleep in a child aged 5 years or more without any congenital or acquired disorders of the central nervous system.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is commonly used for pain control. However, the effects of TENS on osteoarthritis (OA) pain and potential underlying mechanisms remain unclear.
While optical imaging with near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent dye has been used in oncologic surgery, its use in the head and neck has not been established. We aimed to evaluate the feasibility of using ...
Fatigue is the most common symptom in head and neck cancer patients who receive concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT). However, evidence of the effects of acupoint interventions on fatigue and heart rat...
The use of specifically placed small electrodes to deliver electrical impulses across the SKIN to relieve PAIN. It is used less frequently to produce ANESTHESIA.
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
Investigative and diagnostic methods and procedures based on the photoacoustic effect, which is the generation of SOUND WAVES from the absorption of ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION.
Recorded electrical responses from muscles, especially the neck muscles or muscles around the eyes, following stimulation of the EAR VESTIBULE.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
