Table 4 Values of PA resulting from the comparison of the dose obtained from the plan reconstructed from expected positions with the dose obtained from a plan in which the absolute value of position errors |ε| were scaled up to a maximum Σ

From: Treatment verification using Varian’s dynalog files in the Monte Carlo system PRIMO
