The software package, written in Matlab, incorporates interaction sampling methods employed in general-purpose Monte Carlo codes. Users select the incident particle type, energy, target material and (optionally) particle cut-off energies. Modes of operation include; 3D views of particle tracks from a broad beam incident on selected

In addition, the 'physics' underlying radiation transport can be modified, by 'switching off' multiple Coulomb scattering, delta-ray production and radiative energy losses, in order to observe the effect this has on energy deposition and so gain a greater understanding of the physics involved.
