    Abstract : Head and neck cancer is the fifth most common cancer worldwide with an estimated annual global incidence of over 500 000 cases. These malignant tumours develop in the mucosal linings of the upper respiratory tract or in the salivary glands. The most common sites are in the oral cavity and larynx. READ MORE

  2. 2. Radiotherapy for head and neck cancer costs and benefits of time, dose and volume

    Abstract : The use of positron emission tomography (PET) for imaging in oncology has grown rapidly in recent years. 2-[18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is the most common tracer of PET, although drawbacks exist. READ MORE

  5. 5. Radiation Oncology Data and Modelling Side Effects after Radiation Therapy

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Caroline Olsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]

    Abstract : Although modern radiation therapy techniques have the ability to conform the dose distribution of ionizing radiation tightly around the volume to be treated, unwanted irradiation to surrounding organs remains a problem. The probability of a side effect arising in the normal tissue of a patient after radiation therapy can be modelled by sigmoid mathematical functions known as normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) models.
