Abstract

The paper is presented essential practical knowledge about acute mucosal reactions as an effect of radiation therapy in patients with head and neck cancers. The authors have presented their own experience with mucosal reactions in the course of different fractionation schedules. The practical use of Accumulated Dose in Time and Dose-Time Ratio as a parameters of the risk, intensity and overall heaviness of radiation mucositis is proposed.
