Abstract

Conformal radiation with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is a technique that potentially can minimize the dose to salivary glands and thereby decrease the incidence of xerostomia. Precise target determination and delineation is most important when using salivary gland-sparing techniques of IMRT. Reduction of xerostomia can be achieved by sparing the salivary glands on the uninvolved oral cavity and keeping the mean parotid gland dose of less than 26 to 30 Gy as a planning criterion if the treatment of disease is not compromised and parotid function preservation is desired.
