Brachytherapy example simulates energy deposition on a voxel grid
for a MicroSelectron Ir-192 HDR brachytherapy source.
1. Technical description
1.0. MicroSelectron HDR Ir-192 source is constructed in the
brachyDetectorConstruction class. The source is composed by
an iridium core encapsulated in a stainless steel capsule
(body + tip).
The source is put into a 30*cm water box.
1.1. The water box is made sensitive detector. A longitudinal slice
of it is associated to a planar read out geometry. At every hit
energy deposition is read and stored into a voxel matrix.
1.2. Voxel matrix is output to an ASCII file for further processing
(e.g. anysotropy and isodose calculations).
A standard Geant4 example GNUmakefile is provided.
Simply run "Brachy" executable. The ASCII "Brachy.out" file is
Isodoses distribution for a simulation of 20 10 6 photons
