Predicting Toxicity in Radiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancer

Mandible osteoradionecrosis (ORN) is one of the most severe toxicities in patients with head and neck cancer undergoing radiotherapy. Previous literature has focused on examining correlations between mandible ORN and clinical and dosimetric factors. In this work, for the first time we investigated the use of machine learning methods to make personalised predictions of mandible ORN incidence.
