Tissue segmentation issues in Monte Carlo treatment planning for proton radiotherapy

M. Bazalova & F. Verhaegen
Background: Radiotherapy treatment planning is best done using the Monte Carlo (MC) method. Whereas MC dose calculations for conventional photon and electron radiotherapy have been studied extensively, proton beam MC dose calculations have only recently received attention.
