How are other sites implementing bolus for their DIBH cases treated with >10MV?  We use the longer flannel backed bolus for routine surface monitoring cases but find this does work with the DIBH cases .  WE find that the patient cannot hold the 3mm threshold when bolus is in place. WE also have tried to open our threshold by .2mm and .4 mm and still find issues with breath hold patients.  We also have the mess but are concerned about neutron contamination to the skin when higher MV beams.
