This study aims to study the impact image guided radiotherapy with Cone beam CT will have on the outcomes(toxicities and response) of head and neck cancer when compared to 3D conformal radiotherapy without CBCT based setup error verification.Also,the various dosimetric variations in Adaptive RT will be studied.
Aims and Objectives
1. To assess the patient's radiation dose planning for GTV, CTV and PTV for primary and nodal regions and derive comparison between IGRT and 3D-CRT.
2. To assess the dosimetric variation in different phases of adaptive RT due to changes in tumor shape and volume during the course of entire treatment in IGRT arm in head and neck cancer patients.
3. To evaluate the optimal setup correction methodology using planar (EPID) and volumetric images (CBCT) in HNSCC between 3D-CRT and IGRT treatment delivery respectively.
4. To compare the early tumour response and acute and chronic radiation morbidities between IGRT and 3D-CRT.

The clinical importance of cone beam computer tomography based image guided radiotherapy (CT- IGRT) has not been established. The primary aim of the present trial is to investigate whether...
Through this study, we hope to learn more about the mechanisms, which may contribute to development and progression of head and neck cancer. The long-term goal of this study will be to de...

The purpose of this study is to verification of Endotracheal Tube Placement with USG.
Electronic portal imaging devices (EPIDs) are frequently used in external beam radiation therapy for dose verification purposes. The aim of this study was to investigate the dose-response characterist...
Tobacco and alcohol consumption are risk factors for developing head and neck cancer, and continuation postdiagnosis can adversely affect prognosis. We explored changes to these behaviors after a head...
Treatment sequelae such as trismus, shoulder dysfunction syndrome resulting from spinal accessory nerve palsy, and radiotherapy-induced neck fibrosis are often overlooked when in the management of hea...
Postoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) is considered standard of care in patients with locally advanced head and neck cancer with positive margins and/or extracapsular extension (ECE).
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a preventable complication in which early ambulation is expected after head and neck surgery. Thus, the role of VTE prophylaxis is questionable and needs further assess...

Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)
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.
A form of RHABDOMYOSARCOMA arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p2188)
A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors.

Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
