Geant4 Monte Carlo Simulation in Hadrontherapy
Over the past decades hadrontherapy has evolved from very basic to advance along with the improvement of modern radiation techniques, localized radiation dose distribution and deposition calculations. With increasing number of cancer patients, revolutionary techniques has been developed in hadrontherapy in which treatment using charge particles (proton and carbon), currently being most intensely investigated, in which GEANT4 toolkit based on Monte Carlo (MC) Codes also play an important role for better energy deposition, linear energy transfer (LET) calculations and distribution predictions in simple and complex tumor. This paper review hadrontherapy and current intense interest radiation therapy, proton therapy and MC codes importance in hadrontherapy. Keywords - Hadrontherapy, Proton therapy, Monte Carlo Codes, GEANT4.
