} biologically equivalent dose in 2Gy fractions (EQD_{2}) assuming α/β = 2Gy to 10 % of the hippocampus volume of interest (left, right, or bilateral); therefore, D_{m%} is defined as the EQD_{2} to m% of the hippocampal volume of interest; D_{100%} = the EQD_{2} to 100 % of the structure volume, corresponding to the minimal dose received by the hippocampus of interest in our study; Maximum the maximal EQD_{2} irradiating the hippocampus volume of interest
