The University of Tsukuba has developed a treatment planning system (TPS) for boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) that uses a Monte Carlo algorithm as a dose calculation engine. In the system, RBE-weighted dose can be also estimated using the microdosimetric function implemented in PHITS. In this study, we calculated the RBE-weighted doses for various radiation therapy beams. Comparison between the calculated results for different radiation therapy beams as well as verification of the calculated data will be presented at the meeting.
