The boundary layer equations are transformed to non-linear ordinary differential equations. Numerical results are presented for the distribution velocity, micro rotation profiles within the boundary layer. The effects of varying magnetic parameter, the non-dimensional chemical reaction parameter , Schmidt number, porosity parameter, micro rotation parameter, and coupling constant parameter are revealed.</p> 2020-01-04T10:52:46+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 samia sayed shaban Site Specific Calibration Curve And Its Implication in The Treatment Planning of Head And Neck Cancer. 2020-01-18T06:29:19+00:00 Roopam Srivastava Shiva Gaur Pramod Sharma Manoj Sharma Jayanand Manjhi Maria Das Dr Deepika Chauhan Dr Neha Sehgal <p><strong>Purpose</strong>: In this study, we created&nbsp; site specific Hounsfield Unit (HU) and Relative electron density(RED) calibration curves for computed tomography(CT) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for head and neck radiotherapy dose calculation and compared them with standard calibration curves.</p> <p><strong>Methods</strong>:</p> <p>The calibration curves between HU and RED were generated using RANDO phantom for CT and CBCT and fed in the treatment planning system for dose calculation for head and neck patients.The treatment plans for 10 head and neck cancer patients were calculated using the standard calibration curves generated with CATPHAN and head and neck calibration curves generated with RANDO phantom for both CT and CBCT. Dose accuracy of head and neck calibration curves(H/N CC) were compared to the standard calibration curves (SCC) using dose volume metrics and 3D gamma analysis.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>: The results show that slightly better dosimetric agreement from the SCC can be obtained when using this H/N CC.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong>: A site specific calibration curves have been proposed and tested for the head-and-neck patients and the results explain the dosimetric benefits.</p> 2020-01-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Roopam Srivastava, Shiva Gaur, pramod sharma, Manoj Sharma, Jayanand Manjhi, Maria Das, Dr Deepika Chauhan, Dr Neha Sehgal
