Mayo study finds that proton therapy has advantages over IMRT for advanced head and neck cancers
NCI Cancer Center News
(Posted: 07/02/2014) - A new study by radiation oncologists at Mayo Clinic comparing the world’s literature on outcomes of proton beam therapy in the treatment of a variety of advanced head and neck cancers of the skull base compared to intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) has found that proton beam therapy significantly improved disease free survival and tumor control when compared to IMRT. The results appear in the journal Lancet Oncology.
