We use a different threshold for each patient based on their lung capacity. We set the threshold to 80% of the patient’s lung capacity. We coach the patients when the come for their CT planning scan. During coaching we ask the patient to hold their breath for 5sec, then 10sec, and then 20sec. When they are ready we scan them with a breath-hold of 20sec.
