Theory and Applications of Monte Carlo Simulations [Working Title]
In this study, the dose distribution has been calculated for the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study (COMS) eye plaques at various diameters 10-22 mm, loaded with the 103 -Pd brachytherapy seeds (Model IR06-103 Pd). Several Monte Carlo (MC) simulations have been employed to carry out the gold backing and Silastic insert effect on dose distribution around the eye plaque. Version 5 of the Monte Carlo N-particle (MCNP) code has been used to carry out the simulations. The new palladium seed wasdoi:10.5772/intechopen.88144 fatcat:2hfjcqx3trh2pj3aafzesfynwa
