All data were statistically analysed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences v20.0 software (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA). First, a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) using Bonferroni’s multiple comparisons test was applied to compare the four different setup-field plans on the Halcyon. Second, whole and partial arc plans on the same LINAC were compared to determine the most suitable field mode for the machine. The Mann–Whitney U test was used. The better Halcyon plan was selected for further comparisons. Third, a statistical comparison of the better Halcyon plan and the Trilogy plan was implemented to analyse the dosimetric differences between the two machines using the Mann–Whitney U test. The differences were considered statistically significant when p < 0.05.
