AbstractNasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an aggressive head and neck malignancy, and radiotherapy (with or without chemotherapy) is the primary treatment modality. Reliable tumour assessment during the treatment phase, which can portend the efficacy of radiotherapy and early identification of potential treatment failure in radioresistant disease, has been implicit for better cancer management. Technological advancement in the last decade has fostered the development of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques into a promising tool for diagnostic and therapeutic assessments in head and neck cancer. Apart from conventional morphological assessment, early detection of the physiological environment by fMRI allows a more thorough investigation in monitoring tumour response. This article discusses the relevant fMRI utilities in NPC as an early prognostic and monitoring tool for treatment. Challenges and future developments of fMRI in radiation oncology are also discussed.
