Practical clinical guidelines for contouring the trigeminal nerve (V) and its branches in head and neck cancers

Abstract : The trigeminal nerve (V) is a major route of tumor spread in several head and neck cancers. However, only limited data are currently available for its precise contouring, although this is absolutely necessary in the era of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). The purpose of this article is to present practical clinical guidelines for contouring the trigeminal nerve (V) in head and neck cancers at risk of spread along this nerve.
