French term or phrase: ainsi considérés
"Pendant longtemps, le traitement du médulloblastome de l’enfant et de l’adulte incluait une radiothérapie crâniospinale de 36 Gy avec un complément de 18 Gy, soit au total 54 Gy dans la fosse cérébrale postérieure. Ces doses d’irradiation et ces volumes ainsi considérés ont permis d’obtenir des taux de survie sans récidive à cinq ans entre 55 et 70 % [41]. Par analogie, les mêmes modalités d’irradiation ont été appliquées aux médulloblastomes de l’adulte. "

There's the passage the expression comes from. I'm not sure what "ainsi considérés" means here. For me, I can take it out and the sentence will still make sense, but I'm sure they didn't put it in there for no reason. It's from a journal article comparing medulloblastoma in adults and children.

Thank you very much in advance for your help!

Explanation:
This is a problem here-everyone seems to agree that the normal French meaning of "ainsi consideré" -"in this regard" or "considered in this way", makes little sense in the given context. I just wondered if we should take into account that language style and chosing the appropriate word is not necessarily the forté of the scientist and that the writer perhaps means "applied" rather than "considered", especially as "consideré" does have a slightly wider usage than the English "considered".
