At Oxford, we have been performing irradiations of mice in a vertical orientation for certain treatment fields (parallel opposed fields and radial arcs). This is partly due to the limited gantry angles of our system, but there are also advantages to imaging in this orientation. Has anyone else used or considered using a non-standard orientation?

JHU actually did a Phantom study a few years ago. They were looking at the two geometry's with simple phantom. I will ask them to post the results. We have our new imaging phantom now so perhaps a group would be interested in a repeat test.

It looks like you can make attachments - I will try to add a photo tomorrow.. The main advantage to the imaging is that since all of the projections are radial to the mouse, none of the images are taken lengthways through the mouse.

Interesting. I had never considered it, what are the advantages? Is there some way of showing a photo?
