Abstract

The efficacy of transmission block technique with contiguous photon irradiation of inguinal as well as pelvic and perineal structures has been reported in literature. In this paper, a simple and accurate method for the proper fabrication of transmission block has been described and also demonstrated to be effective and useful. The procedures for a precise geometrical alignment and dose verification are also detailed.
