Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):846. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.846-b

Objective: To evaluate acute mucosal reactions in head and neck cancer patients treated by conventional and accelerated irradiation, with particular consideration of morphological and functional parameters, appearance and duration.
