Resources for medical physics applications

The following links are to talks, publications and application web pages, including Geant4 Collaboration web pages, relating to medical physics. The links are, as much as possible, grouped by topic. The first section of links covers topics of common interest, such as physics, geometry, tracking and biasing. The next three sections refer to applications specific to radiology, radiotherapy and micro/nano-dosimetry. Lastly, we suggest some links to medical physics meetings and communities, including the Geant4 User Forum for medical applications.

Please contact us if you would like to present your talks and publications on these pages.

Physics, geometry and tracking




Geant4 Physics electromagnetic processes are available for the simulation of particle interactions down to the electronVolt and molecular scale in liquid water, the main component of biological medium. Developments are on-going in the framework of the Geant4-DNA project, initiated by P. Nieminen ( European Space Agency/ESTEC) in order to model Physics, Chemistry and Biology processes for the simulation of biological effects of ionizing radiation.

A description of available processes is accessible from this link.

Selected references can be found here.

General links

The medical physics pages are maintained by Sebastien Incerti, Christina Zacharatou, Pablo Cirrone, Paul Gueye and Stephane Chauvie.
