Course Material 


Patients who undergo primary surgical resection for a head and neck squamous cell carcinoma may require post-operative radiotherapy, with or without concurrent chemotherapy. When used appropriately, this improves loco-regional control and oncological outcomes. The decision for post-operative radiotherapy is largely based on presence of pathological risk factors for recurrence. 

This segment will offer some guide on the delineation of post-operative primary and nodal clinical target volumes, based on inputs from a head and neck surgeon, radiologist and radiation oncologist.


This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists and radiation oncology residents.


Each of the workshop sessions will last for two hours.  The session will cover the following areas:

  • (Pre-course) Access to platform and hands-on contouring by participants

  • Short talks each by sub-site surgeon, radiation oncologist and radiologist

  • Presentation of the case and delineation guidelines used

  • Breakout session to review participants’ contours in comparison to the reference contours

  • Summary of key points by expert panel 

  • Discussion between participants and experts

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the clinical and anatomical rationale for the selection of clinical target volumes.

  • Learn about imaging modalities useful in showing tumour and secondary changes in the pre-operative scans.

  • To understand the rationale of surgical approaches, implants/reconstructive approaches in oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma.

  • Learn about the post-operative imaging modalities used to identify residual tumour and/or post-operative changes.

  • To be aware of the common pitfalls in delineation.

  • Learn about the considerations and indications for radiotherapy to the primary surgical bed and post-operative neck.
