Feasibility of IMRT Modulation to Account for Scattered Radiation From Dental Fillings in Head and Neck Cancer
Trial ID or NCT#
The main objective of this study is to determine the feasibility of optimizing the IMRT treatment plan based on dosimeter measurements of mucosal radiation dose adjacent to the dental fillings to reduce such dose to < 35 Gy without compromising tumor coverage and/or increasing the dose to the remaining oral cavity or nearby parotid glands.
A Feasibility Study of IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy) Modulation to Account for Scattered Radiation From Dental Fillings in Head and Neck Cancer Patients
- - Patients with HNC undergoing radiation therapy +/- chemotherapy at Stanford University - At least 18 years old - Metallic filling present - Planned radiation dose to the tumor > 60 Gy at 1.8 to 2.2 Gy/fx - Able to understand and sign a written informed consent document.
- - Pregnant - Nursing
