Introduction: Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) is a technique increasingly used in radiotherapy. It was recently introduced in Morocco. Furthermore, technological advances allow the use of conformal radiotherapy to be phased out and replaced by VMAT technique for some locations. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy and quality of treatment with VMAT of nasopharyngeal cancer. Methods: Twenty patients with non-metastatic nasopharyngeal cancer treated curatively by VMAT were studied at the Al Kindy Oncology Center in Casablanca. The dose was delivered using two arcs at a dose of 70 Gy in 35 fractions.
