  • One of the objectives of the European Sixth Framework integrated project MAESTRO is to perform an assessment of risk due to various radiotherapy modalities, regarding secondary tumour induction. Initially, the study will focus on cancer of the prostate and the present work represents the first step towards that goal. One of the intended tools, to be used in the assessment, is the Monte Carlo radiation transport code ORANGE. A validation of the ORANGE code's capability to tally dose on a grid… CONTINUE READING
