A dose calculation system for providing accurate dose distribution in a patient body is under developing for supporting radiotherapy using photons and electrons. In this system, a sophisticated human model, a precise accelerator head model, and a Monte Carlo calculation will be utilized to perform realistic simulation. The dose distribution is calculated by this system on the ITBL computer at the dose calculation center, and the related data are transferred through a network. This system is intended to support the quality assurance of current treatments carried out in Japan. Further, this system is planned to apply to advanced radiotherapy. The project started on November 2003 and is scheduled to continue for five years. Prototypes of some parts constituting the system have been already developed, and the fundamental features on the radiation fields have been investigated. On the basis of the fundamental investigation, the final system will be designed and constructed.
