Early mucosal reactions during and after head-and-neck radiotherapy: dependence of treatment tolerance on radiation dose and schedule duration.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: To more precisely localize the dose-time boundary between head-and-neck radiotherapy schedules inducing tolerable and intolerable early mucosal reactions. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Total cell-kill biologically effective doses (BED(CK)) have been calculated for 84 schedules, including incomplete repair effects, but making no other corrections for the effect of schedule duration T. [BED(CK),T] scatterplots are graphed, overlying BED(CKboundary)(T) curves on the plots and using discriminan...
