Comparison of MCNP 4 C , 4 B and 4 A Monte Carlo codes when calculating electron therapy depth doses

M onte Carlo (MC) techniques are becoming more widely used in all medical physics applications. MC simulation of radiation transport is considered a highly accurate method of radiation therapy dose calculation. There are different MC codes for simulation of photons, electrons and the coupled transport of electrons and photons. There are three main families… CONTINUE READING
