Each slice has holes which are plugged with bone-equivalent, soft-tissue-equivalent or lung tissue-equivalent pins which can be replaced by TLD holder pins. The holder pins are ordered separately. Soft-tissue-equivalent coatings produce slices with glass-smooth interfaces. These coatings are cut away over the air spaces of the oronasal pharynges, trachea and stem bronchi.
