Frank J Bova, William A Friedman: Dosimetric technique for stereotactic radiosurgery same. University of Florida, Kerkam Stowell Kondracki & Clarke, July 2, 1991: US05027818 (284 worldwide citation)

Stereotactic radiosurgery is facilitated by a technique for computing the doses at various points within the patient's body. In particular, the doses are computed at a relatively high density of points within a fine dose grid and at a relatively low density of points within a coarse dose grid. In th ...
