Figure 6

Normalized percentage of isodose curves for the cylindrical phantom model established for dose calculations at two different tumor depths. Panel (a) represents the original position and panel (b) represents a 3 cm lateral shift. The central axis of the neutron beam is indicated with an orange arrow. The positions of the virtual tumors are represented with blue circles.
