摘要

The objectives of this study were determine the quality of life (QoL) for patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) after treatment with different advanced technologies in radiotherapy (RT). A total of 150 patients with NPC were consecutively treated using curative RT in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Tri-service General Hospital in Taiwan. Data were collected prospectively from medical records and questionnaires. We used the Short-Form-36 (SF36) health survey questionnaire to evaluate general QoL, and a modified EORTC QLQ-H&N35 questionnaire to evaluate the correlation of xerostomia with QoL. The selection of RT methodology among two-dimensional radiotherapy (2D-RT), three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) was a significant factor for predicting difficulty of speech (P = 0.003), difficulty in chewing (P = 0.012), swallowing ability (P = 0.004), dry throat sensationas during meals (P = 0.006) and the frequency of drinking water to maintain a moist mouth (P = 0.01). Our data suggest that the intensitymodulated radiotherapy technique plays a significant role in improving the QoL of NPC patients in our study.
