The Particle Therapy Simulation Framework (PTSIM) is a Geant4-based Monte Carlo simulation framework for particle therapy. The PTSIM provides a common platform to model a beam delivery system and a treatment head with patient data obtained from CT images. The PTSIM had already supported three Japanese proton and ion therapy facilities and three more in(More)
Geant4 is a software toolkit used to simulate the interaction of particles in matter. Monte Carlo simulation is useful in the design of particle treatment facilities and quality assurance of treatment plans. The particle therapy simulation framework (PTSIM) is a Geant4-based simulation framework for particle therapy validated using protons and carbon-ions.(More)
Dose calculation for particle therapy has been performed on GRID environments using a Geant4 based particle therapy simulation framework (PTSIM). PTSIM provides a common platform to model a beam line and treatment head with patient data from CT. PTSIM has already provided three of Japanese proton and ion therapy facilities and three more in other countries.(More)
