This study aims at evaluating the effects of different lung densities on dose distribution after irradiation at different field sizes, by comparing experimental measurements, GEANT4 Monte Carlo (MC) simulations and two TPS calculation algorithms on ad hoc phantoms. Irradiations were performed with a Varian Clinac 2100 C/D with a nominal energy of 6 MV.(More)
In recent years, cases of cancer have been reported among Italian troops involved in the peacekeeping mission in Bosnia and Kosovo. By the end of 2000, the Italian Minister of Defence appointed a Committee of Enquiry to gain a scientifically sound, reliable picture of the health consequences of the exposure of military personnel to Depleted Uranium (DU) and(More)
New technologies in cancer radiotherapy need a more accurate computation of the dose delivered in the radiotherapeutical treatment plan, and it is important to integrate sophisticated mathematical models and advanced computing knowledge into the treatment planning (TP) process. We present some results about using Monte Carlo (MC) codes in dose calculation(More)
