Conference paper


High energy electron beams are employed in the treatment of tumours of the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses:
  1. 1)

    For the possibility of employing a single field: of 28–30 MeV for the ethmoid; of 20–25 MeV for the maxillary sinus.

  2. 2)

    For the frequently observed good sensibility of these tumours, when irradiated with electron beams.

  3. 3)

    For the sparing of healthy tissues.
