Medical applications of the PHITS code, 1; Recent improvements and biological dose estimation model

Sato, Tatsuhiko; Furuta, Takuya; Hashimoto, Shintaro; Kuga, Naoya*

PHITS is a general purpose Monte Carlo particle transport simulation code developed through the collaboration of several institutes mainly in Japan. It can analyze the motion of nearly all radiations over wide energy ranges in 3-dimensional matters. It has been used for various applications including medical physics. This paper reviews the recent improvements of the code, such as implementation of EGS5, new photo-nuclear reaction model, and sumtally function. The review of the biological dose estimation method developed on the basis of the microdosimetric function implemented in PHITS is also given.
