Abstract: Purpose: The various techniques that have been described for treatment of the craniospinal axis show the common challenge of edge matching between adjacent orthogonal and parallel photon beams. Such edge matching is needed because the maximum field length provided by modern treatment machines is generally insufficient to treat adults with less than three matching fields. Using the common techniques, field edge matching becomes difficult, if for medical reasons, the patient cannot be treated in the prone position.
