Descriptions of treatment techniques should be included in the Methods section if the treatment techniques for the study were defined prospectively. If not, this information should be reported in the Results section. Identify the methods, equipment (give the manufacturer’s name and address in parentheses), and procedures in sufficient detail to allow others to reproduce the results (refer to specific guidelines summarized below and in Keyerleber et al. Completeness of reporting of radiation therapy planning, dose, and delivery in veterinary radiation oncology manuscripts from 2005 to 2010. Vet Radiol Ultrasound. 2012 Mar-Apr;53(2):221-30, and the appropriate International Commission on Radiation Units (ICRU) reports for the type of treatment being delivered). Provide references and brief descriptions for methods that have been published but are not universally accepted; describe new or substantially modified methods, give the reasons for using them, and evaluate their limitations. The following requirements should be applied, as indicated, given the radiation technique that is used.
