In order to model the track structure of clinical mega-voltage photon beams in a reasonable time, it is necessary to use a multi-scale approach incorporating a track-structure algorithm for the regions of interest and a condensed history algorithm for the rest of the geometry. This paper introduces a multi-scale Monte Carlo system, which is used to hand off… CONTINUE READING
