Leyli Mogheiseh; Ali Asghar Mowlavi; Sayyed Bijan Jia; Reza Shamsabadi

Volume 4, Issue 3 , June 2023, , Pages 65-72

  Proton therapy of liver tumors can be challenging due to the absorbed dose of produced secondary particles in non-target organs. This study aims to evaluate the absorbed dose of secondary particles during the proton therapy of liver cancer through the MCNPX Monte Carlo (MC) code by a simplified MIRD-UF ...  Read More
