Overview of Radiation Oncology in Head and Neck Cancers
Radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that involves sending high-energy beams of particles through the skin toward the tumor. When the beams reach the tumor, they destroy the cancer cells by damaging their DNA. Radiation therapy is known for its particular effectiveness against head and neck tumors. Noah Kalman, M.D., will provide insight on the evolution of radiation treatment and the changes that impact the risk of dental sequelae.
