    Department of Radiation Oncology, New York University School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA
    Med Dosim 34:154-7. 2009
    ..The attenuation caused by the ESBF must be accounted for in the planning process. For Eclipse, the frame should be contoured and included in all calculations. This can be done easily and accurately...
