3D Conformal Treatment Technique

The article by Suk Whan (Paul) Yoon (PhD candidate, advisor Dr. Oldham) and his co-authors, “A precision 3D conformal treatment technique in rats: application to whole brain radiotherapy with hippocampal avoidance,” was featured in on November 10th. The Duke team has developed a novel 3D conformal treatment technique to deliver WBRT in laboratory rats. Their most recent implementation of this technique incorporates several innovations, including high-precision 3D-printed immobilization and conformal radiation blocks and high-resolution MRI atlases, to achieve hippocampal avoidance (HA) WBRT.
