The National Internal Radiation Assessment Section's Human Monitoring Laboratory (HML) has purchased and developed a number of in-house tools to create and edit voxel phantoms. This paper describes the methodology developed in the HML using those tools to prepare input files for Monte Carlo simulations using voxel phantoms. Three examples are given. The(More)
A generic field-theoretic model for the self-assembly of particles with isotropic interactions, motivated by ideas in DNA-mediated colloidal assembly, is presented. A simplest possible system of colloids in explicit solvent is examined to determine the ability of non-connected particles to form complex nanometre or micron scale equilibrium structures in the(More)
The performance of two voxel phantoms (NORMAN and VIP-Man) in a whole body counter measuring internally deposited radionuclides has been compared using Monte Carlo simulations. The results from voxel phantoms has been compared with Monte Carlo simulations of BOMAB phantoms of similar size. The results show that the NORMAN phantom compared with VIP-Man gives(More)
A collaboration of the EURADOS working group on 'Internal Dosimetry' and the United States Transuranium and Uranium Registries (USTUR) has taken place to carry out an intercomparison on measurements and Monte Carlo modelling determining americium deposited in the bone of a USTUR leg phantom. Preliminary results and conclusions of this intercomparison(More)
