The DVH is a sensitive representation of the dosimetric shift that could also be seen on the 2D or 3D anatomical representation of dose distribution on the CT scan of the patient. The latter being the base of the γ-index analysis. Plans 1 and 2 are calculated for lung with 3DCRT using the same Dpr with two different algorithms, and Plan 3 is a retro-calculation by the new algorithm with the MUs of Plan 1
