F Avraham Dilmanian, Gerard M Morris, James F Hainfeld: Methods for implementing microbeam radiation therapy. Brookhaven Science Associates, Lori Anne Neiger, March 20, 2007: US07194063 (109 worldwide citation)

A method of performing radiation therapy includes delivering a therapeutic dose such as X-ray only to a target (e.g., tumor) with continuous broad beam (or in-effect continuous) using arrays of parallel planes of radiation (microbeams/microplanar beams). Microbeams spare normal tissues, and when int ...
