Table 3 CRCmean and CRCmax limits for the six phantom spheres as defined by EARL [17]. For each sphere, relative differences between the upper and lower CRC limits were calculated using \( {\mathrm{CRC}}_{\mathrm{dif}}\left(\%\right)=\frac{\mathrm{maximumCRC}-\mathrm{minimumCRC}}{\left(\mathrm{maximumCRC}+\mathrm{minimumCRC}\right)\times 0.5}\times 100 \)
