Figure 1

Diagram to measure various dosimetric factors. (a) Breast height (red line) means the distance between the posterior filed border and the apex of breast and breast separation (blue line) means the distance from medial to lateral radiation field border on central axis. is indicated as magenta area and a perpendicular line to divide the breast separation as halves is indicated as green line. (b) Green line is the extension line from the central axis (a) and asymmetry ratio of lateral separation to medical separation on the upper border is the distance of dark blue to the distance of light blue. A virtual contour that edited 2 mm from the body was generated to measure point doses indicated as yellow line.
