Welcome to the Twiki web page of the G4MSBG initiative: G4-Med


The aim of the Geant4 Medical Physics Benchmarking Group (G4MSBG) is to develop a fully automatised Geant4 benchmarking and regression testing system for medical physics applications, called G4-Med. A set of Geant4 Physics Constructors and Lists of interest for medical physics applications are tested. The tests are integrated in the geant-val test system to be executed for benchmarking and regression testing. The test are executed using the CERN computing infrastructure.

List of current tests

Currently the G4-Med system includes 18 tests.
