Intensity-modulated radiation therapy dose prescription, recording, and delivery: patterns of variability among institutions and treatment planning systems.
BACKGROUND Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a widely accepted method for radiation treatment to provide a prescribed and uniform dose to the target volume and a minimum dose to normalExpand

Comparison of tissue characterization curves for different CT scanners: implication in proton therapy treatment planning
For proton beam therapy, CT imaging is required to calculate dose based on CT pixel values of relative stopping power (RSP). The variation among CT-scanners and the phantom used to derive theExpand

Dosimetric comparison of split field and fixed jaw techniques for large IMRT target volumes in the head and neck.
Some treatment planning systems (TPSs), when used for large-field (>14 cm) intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), create split fields that produce excessive multiple-leaf collimator segments,Expand

Sterility in Wheat and Response of Field Crops to Applied Boron in the Indo-Gangetic Plains
Summary Results of field experiments across the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) region indicates that soil B deficiency induces sterility in wheat and results in poor crop yields of legumes and cereals.Expand
