Development of a Parallel Electron and Photon Transport Code (PMCEPT) I: Method and Absorbed Dose Computation in Water

Abstract

The Monte Carlo (MC) method for high-energy photon and charged particle transport is the most accurate for dose calculations in radiotherapy. However, the large amount of computing time required by general purpose MC codes has prevented their use for routine dose distribution calculations for customized radiation treatment planning. One of the best ways to… (More)
