Dot Decimal/Bolus Conformal Therapy

For cancers at, or just underneath, the surface of the skin.

What is Dot Decimal/Bolus Conformal Therapy?

Radiation is an effective treatment for cancers even at the skin surface or just underneath the skin. At Cancer Specialists of North Florida we employ custom shaped “cut-outs” of your specific anatomy to help your doctor design more accurate radiation plans. After getting a radiation planning scan, a 3-dimensional printed “cut out” is custom made for your body.

What does that mean for me?

These custom cut-outs or boluses are placed over your skin and specifically designed to bend, fold, and stretch with you. This allows for greater comfort for you during your radiation treatment and allows your doctor to deliver radiation to your cancer with precision and accuracy.
