Abstractand Purpose: Image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) is widely used but data directly relating setup errors to patient outcome is scarce. This study investigates the relationship between residual IGRT shifts and overall patient survival, and uses the observed relations to identify structures sensitive to radiation dose.
