|Official Title:||Optimized Intensity Modulated Irradiation for Head and Neck Cancer|
- Percentage of Participants With Grade 0-1 Observer-rated Dysphagia [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To objectively assess dysphagia and aspiration in patients receiving dysphagia/aspiration-sparing IMRT concurrent with chemotherapy, the percentage of participants with observer-rated dysphagia was calculated.
- The Mean Esophageal Radiotherapy Dose in Patients With Strictures and Without Strictures [ Time Frame: 5 years ]To assess the relationships between the mean radiotherapy dose delivered and objectively measured dysphagia.

Chemotherapy will consist of Paclitaxel 30mg/m² IV over 1 hour, followed by Carboplatin (AUC 1) IV over 30 minutes, or Carboplatin 100mg/m² per IV over 30 minutes or Cisplatin 100mg/m² per IV over 1 hour, or Cisplatin (80mg/m²) or Carboplatin (AUC 5) IV on day 1 and 5-Fluorouracil (1000mg/m²) as a 24-hour continuous infusion, daily x 4 days.
Intensity-modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT):
Primary RT: 70 Gy to gross disease and 56-63 Gy to subclinical disease in 35 fractions.
Post-operative RT: 64 Gy to high-risk targets (postoperative tumor bed, first-echelon nodes) and 57.6 Gy to low-risk targets, in 32 fractions.
