Verification of monte carlo calculations in fast neutron therapy using silicon microdosimetry

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Silicon microdosimetry measurements in Fast Neutron Therapy were simulated using the GEANT4 Monte Carlo toolkit. The possibility of using silicon microdosimeters for verification of Monte Carlo based treatment planning systems in hadron therapy is demonstrated.
