From July 2013 to July 2014 seven patients with leukaemia… (More)
Fig. 1 Different CT slices of the cranial part of patient H.L. The arrows indicate the positions of the thermoplastic and gel boluses. The colour wash presentation of the dose distribution shows the dose reductions of up to 50 % in the lung and the kidneys. In patient H.L. the kidneys were spared due to pre-TBI renal insufficiency
