Trial Information

Evaluation of Cone Beam Kilovoltage Imaging During Radiation Therapy for Tumors of the Head and Neck


The general purpose of this study is to evaluate Kilovoltage (kv) Imaging, specifically the
Cone-beam CT (CBCT) scan device, to assess the accuracy of radiation therapy treatment
delivery for patients with head and neck neoplasms


Inclusion Criteria:



- any patient receiving radiation therapy for a head and neck tumor assigned to the new
Elekta Synergy Linare Accelerator

Exclusion Criteria:

- NA

Type of Study:

Interventional

Study Design:

Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Outcome Measure:

The hypothesis is that by using CBCT, the CTV to PTV margin can be reduced by approximately 50% (from 5 mm to 2.5 mm) and that this can reduce toxicity and allow radiotherapy dose escalation.

Safety Issue:

No
