From that day, it has become -- and remains as of today -- the best tool on the market for IMRT and IGRT, with better target conformality than any linac-based solution.
Zoberi continued: "By using TomoTherapy to treat advanced breast cancer cases, we gain a good advantage in plan conformality, critical structure sparing and homogenous dose to the skin surface.
We could show how we did on conformality, speed and QA, and how many times we ended up using one, two or three arcs and how long each plan took to deliver based on the number of arcs.
The CVD Ru process offers exceptional feature conformality and resistivity in aggressive damascene features at thicknesses of 2nm (20).
The completely automated optimization of the spot deliveries allows clinicians to produce treatment plans with a high degree of conformality around the target, therefore, minimizing the dose to adjacent healthy tissue," says Virgil Willcut, Vice President of Product Management, Physics & Research for Elekta Treatment Planning.
We think that the real-time tracking and high conformality made possible with the CyberKnife System could result in reduced toxicity by reducing the dose to the surrounding breast tissue, skin, chest wall, lung or heart," said Charlie Ma, Ph.
Figure 1A shows the 100 percent conformality of CFD oxide films deposited on FEOL structures with increasing aspect ratios.
Elekta Axesse allows for multiple energy options and beam shaping options for efficient dose delivery and optimal target conformality, so healthy tissue is spared.
1] Another published study compared non-coplanar plans with VMAT plans for liver cancer, finding that the former could offer significant improvements in dose conformality and normal organ sparing.
Ultra-thin copper films with the highest level of uniformity and conformality only ALD can offer as a thin film deposition method are a crucial element in today's and future's microelectronics and MEMS (microelectromechanical sensors) manufacturing.
Conformality (the preservation of angles) is a property ill-suited to general world maps (Canters 2002).
They are attractive because they enable the growth of thin films of high conformality and uniformity with an accurate thickness control.
