a Left) Rigid registration of the cranial-caudal position of the right diaphragm (inside the red box) in all breathing phases. Right) The difference between the most extreme translations was defined as the amplitude (A4DCT). b Amsterdam Shroud (AS) method to manually track the CC diaphragm position in CBCT projection images. a) Region of interest (red box). b) CC gradient filter applied and sum of all pixels creates a 1D image. C) This is repeated for all projection images, creating a 2D image. d) Detection of diaphragm positions in inhale and exhale breathing phases. e) Pixel coordinates translated to CC position. The amplitude was defined as the displacement between averaged end-inspiration and end-expiration diaphragm positions (ACBCT)
