Age, percent tumour coverage, conformality index, new conformality index, cochlear dose, and audiometric test results were collected and analyzsed for all patients.
These include what volumes are to be treated and what volumes are to be avoided; what modalities in that particular department are available to give the best conformality of dose to these volumes; what the total dose and fractionation pattern should be.
The use of the scale [Q.sub.0] to resolve the factorization scale uncertainty in structure functions and fragmentation functions, in combination with the schemeindependent principle of maximum conformality (PMC) [70] for setting renormalization scales, can greatly improve the precision of pQCD predictions for collider phenomenology.
Extending our perspective to include PH-preserving mappings raises another question which brings us nearer to core of the PH-preserving property: what is the key to the property of PH preservation: conformality, harmonicity, or both?

These lower ovarian doses came at the expense of decreased conformality in the ovary-sparing plans compared with the standard plans (mean conformity index: 1.12 versus 1.19, p = 0.009) as well as a small increased bone dose in the ovary-sparing plans (mean V50 bone: 8.5% versus 6.9%, p = 0.049).
It serves up familiar fare with names including the likes of Mercator, Peters and Goode, for example, but stands out in delivering meaningful explanations and comparisons of conformality, equal area, deformation, convention, traditional projections (cylindrical, conic and plane) and so on through to mathematical projections (sinusoidal, homolographic, homolosine and orthophanic as well as interrupted and condensed).
These technologies are characterized by the delivery of a high radiation dose to a small volume in a short time interval with high accuracy as well as conformality [4].
In such setting, planar textile-based antennas are extremely suitable to ensure flexibility, conformality and ergonomocity [6-9].
