Lung cancer survival after radiotherapy remains poor and greater knowledge of normal tissue risk factors is needed to further optimise treatments. In this work, we investigate tumour laterality in a large cohort of patients treated with curative-intent radiotherapy, including the effect of dose on the right and left lungs.
