The EURADOS School on voxel phantom development and implementation for radiation physics calculations is organised by EURADOS Working Group 6 “Computational Dosimetry”. The school is intended for scientists who are new in the field and those who want to deepen and widen their knowledge. It will give general and practical information on voxel phantoms, their development and implementation into several Monte Carlo code packages, as well as selected applications. The school will be composed of lectures, tutorials and practical exercises given by experts in the field.

Topics to be covered:

  • General information on voxel phantoms
  • Steps needed to go from image data (CT/MRI) to a voxel phantom
  • Implementation in different Monte Carlo codes (prospectively: MCNP family, GEANT)
  • Application of voxel phantoms to Monte Carlo simulation
  • New generation of phantoms (NURBS, MESH, hybrid)
