The Head and Neck Radiotherapy Department II (Ward II) (formerly known as Nasopharynx Radiotherapy Department) was established in 1993 after the division of the former radiotherapy department. This department is a comprehensive treatment department based on radiation therapy, which gives main treatments to nasopharyngeal carcinoma and other malignant tumors of the head and neck (oral cancer, oropharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer, nasal sinus cancer,brain glioma, brain metastases, etc.). This ward has in-depth research on comprehensive treatment and precise radiotherapy for head and neck cancer such as nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and implements MDT (multidisciplinary consultation) mode. Neoadjuant radiotherapy, postoperative radiotherapy, concurrent radiochemotherapy, hyperfractionated radiotherapy, simultaneously integrated boosted (SIB) and other irradiation techniques are widely used to carry out general intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), Tomotherapy (TOMO), image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) and other high-precision techniques, to give patients the best individualized accurate comprehensive treatment model (the department has 9 well-known domestic external experts as visiting professors, consultants).

They apply the advanced experience and research ideas of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, targeted immunotherapy and other comprehensive treatments to the clinic, and adhere to applying the latest treatment concepts and methods to clinical diagnosis and treatment. The department has developed the rules and procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of the main diseases related. Each patient is discussed in the department before treatment, and individualized treatment plans are developed for each patient to implement standardized treatment.
