A Novel GPU-based Fast Monte Carlo Photon Dose Calculating Method for Accurate Radiotherapy Treatment Planning
Objective: This work aimed to create a novel GPU-based fast Monte Carlo Photon Dose Code (called MCPDC in this work) as a fast and accurate tool in dose calculation for radiotherapy treatment planning. Materials and Methods: MCPDC was written to implement photon Monte Carlo simulation for energies in the range of 0.01-20 MeV and run on an NVIDIA GTX970. The code was validated using DOSXYZnrc results and experimental measurements, performed by a Mapcheck dosimeter. Using the innovativefatcat:p65ttej2fnfmbl7frx3y3gw73m
