This retrospective study aimed to compare the response of radiation therapy between 2D
conventional technique with the booster of 2D, 3DCRT or brachytherapy techniques in patients
with early-stage nasopharyngeal cancer (stage I - IIa). From 20 sample, obtained
complete response in 17 patients (85%) and partial response in 3 patients (15%) (p =
0.219). Side effects of acute radiation dermatitis grade 3-4 is 5% (p=0.435) , mucositis
grade 3-4 is 15% (p=0.510) and xerostomia grade 3-4 is 0% (p=0.517). The result showed
no satistically significant but clinically there is a tendency that with the booster of brachytherapy
and 3DCRT techniques, are better compared with 2D technique in terms of acute
mucositis side effects
