Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph

Field-in-Field (FiF) Technique is based on the superposition of a main field and blocking subfields merged in one portal, for sequential irradiation. The subfields can be either open asymmetric or MLC shaped, in order to allow for better dose uniformity in the PTV. Can FiF be considered more advantageous compared to the other techniques used in tangential whole breast irradiation?
