 > Abstract 


Over a decade of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) improved the toxicity profile among head-and-neck cancer patients and also improved the quality of life (QOL). Several parameters' few subjective and few objectives have documented various aspects related to QOL. Patients surviving beyond a certain period will have few unattended concern. A single questionnaire-based evaluation might answer few untouched issues. This brief communication formulated such an indigenous single-institution scale named IMRT late-effect assessment scale (ILEA). The preliminary analysis identified concerns related to dryness of mouth, swallowing habit change, and fear of disease recurrence. Future large-scale prospective evaluation is needed.

Keywords: Head-and-neck cancer, intensity-modulated radiotherapy, quality of life, survival
