  1. For LETd, pO2 and OER values, the median is reported with the 25 and 75 percentiles indicated in brackets. While the normoxic part of the CTV resulted in an OER of 1, the decreased levels of oxygen within the GTVhypoxic led to increased OER, thus higher amounts of dose necessary to control the tumour
