Analysis of lung dose by tumor location. Bars show the mean difference (±standard deviation) in lung Dmean and Vx over all patients between MIP and the other CT datasets. Mean values over all 10 patients resulted in large differences. If patients with tumor overlap to the diaphragm were excluded (6 patients left), the differences decreased drastically. AIP: average intensity projection CT, PCT: planning CT, MIP: maximum intensity projection CT, MidV: mid-ventilation CT
