Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) provides the ability to not only conform: the radiation dose to the shape of the target thereby reducing dose to normal tissues, it also allows to deliver different doses each day to different parts of the target. This approach is known as a simultaneous integrated boost (SIB). This study aims that dosimetric parameters of SIB with IMRT treatment planning technique are compared with conventional treatment planning technique using NTCP for 2 head and neck cancer patients.
