The dependence of the difference of the mean lung dose obtained by DCAT (MLD DCAT ) and by the conventional 3D CRT treatment plan (MLD 3 D CRT ) on the volume of the PTV (a), total lung volume (b), and the minimal distance between CTV and the spinal cord (c). The correlation between the differences in V5Gy and V20Gy (d), MLD and V20Gy (e), and MLD and V5Gy (f). An individual patient case is represented as a point in the diagram; its x- and y-coordinates represent its relevant parameter values
