Study Summary

This trial looks at using advanced imaging & software to plan the best treatment for head & neck cancer.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults over 19 with head and neck cancer who are set to receive radiation therapy at the NS Health QE2 site. They must be scheduled for a minimum of 21 treatment sessions. Pregnant individuals, those not consenting, or patients with prior treatments like bilateral neck dissection/laryngectomy or radiation to oral cavity/sinuses cannot participate.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study is testing the effectiveness of HyperSight CBCT imaging combined with adaptive planning software in creating real-time and adjusted radiotherapy plans for treating head and neck cancers.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
As this trial focuses on imaging technology rather than medication, side effects may not be as common as drug trials. However, there could be risks associated with additional exposure to radiation from frequent imaging.
