These skin folds can be carefully reduced if the patient pulls up the pendulous abdomen while acquiring the prone position. We carried out an interdisciplinary methodology developed in collaboration with radiologists to defined some practical suggestions for the execution of the CT scan for radiation treatment planning (planning CT). The CT scanning technique should be spiral and single-slice, since it affords higher resolution and provides a greater amount of volumetric information for delineation of radiotherapy target volumes compared with sequential acquisition [80, 93, 94].
