I have tonsil cancer that has spread to my lymph nodes.  Began Chemotherapy (TCF Protocol) the end of march with good results.  after the three treatments my insuing PET scan showed complete clinical remission.  however the treatment protocol requires another step of 7 weeks combined carboplatin(weekly) and daily radiation.  just discovered that there are different radiation therapies(equipment).  Of course everybody says theirs is the best.  any opinions on which ones are.  i am very concerned about destroying my salivary glands as my current radiation oncologist says she doesn't think she can avoid them.  the systems i've heard of are "Tomotherapy", "Rapid Arc" and "Trilogy" which one is really the best.
