A supine craniospinal irradiation [CSI] technique was developed for paediatric patients requiring anaesthesia, where the traditional prone position could be associated with potential respiratory compromise. This technique mandated an equivalent level of confidence provided by the prone position-ability to palpate the spine and pre-treatment verification of junctions, while maintaining efficiencies in treatment planning and patient setups.
