To design a diagnostic or therapeutic irradiation programme, there is a need to estimate the absorbed dose. In this investigation, specific absorbed fractions (SAFs) were calculated based on Cristy and Eckerman's analytical adult phantom, by MCNP4C Monte Carlo code. SAFs were estimated with uncertainty <3%, for about 600 source organ-target organ pairs at 12 photon energies (these data are available at http://www.um.ac.ir/~mirihakim). Then these results were compared with Cristy and Eckerman's… CONTINUE READING
