Abstract

A chronic clinically significant reduction of PFTs compared to pre-RT values and CT-changes four months after RT were still detectable after a median follow-up of 11 years. There was a statistical correlation between V20 and abnormalities on CT but no statistical correlation between V20 and VC-changes.
