Mammography test

Main authors:Christian Fedon and Ioannis Sechopoulos, Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

Short description: The aim is to validate Geant4 in absolute terms at the local dose deposition level for breast dosimetry application.

Reference publication:

  • C. Fedon, M. Caballo, R. Longo, A. Trianni, I. Sechopoulos, "Internal breast dosimetry in mammography: Experimental methods and Monte Carlo validation with a mono-energetic X-ray beam", Med. Phys, 2018.
  • C. Fedon, M. Caballo, I. Sechopoulos, "Internal breat dosimetry in mammography: Monte Carlo validation in homogeneous and anthropomorphic breast phantoms with a clinical mammography system", Med. Phys. 2018.

Geant-val layout: Mammo

Reference data: In-house experimental measurements performed using TLD-100H detectors. The dosimeters, embedded in a homogeneous phantom with 50% adipose - 50% gladular breat, have been irradiated by a monoenergetic, parallel synchrotron radiation beam (@20 keV).

Tested EM physics constructors:

  • EMStandard_opt0
  • EMStandard_opt3
  • EMStandard_opt4
  • Livermore
  • Penelope
