Abstract

Modern techniques of radiotherapy are supposed to decrease the incidence of osteoradionecrosis of the mandible (ORNM). The purpose of this study was to compare the incidence of ORNM after intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in comparison to conventional 3D conformal radiotherapy techniques (conventional RT).
