Question Medical Linac Question 

Forum: Medical Applications
Date: 06 Oct, 2010
From: <Nathan.C.Nelson@Hitchcock.org>

Hi All,

I compiled and ran the advanced Medical Linac example (4.9.3) with its default ml2.mac and let it run for a long while (21464080 events) before I terminated the run. Using the default VoxelsTest.txt file I expected a 6 MV 30x30 cm depth dose along the depth of the z axis in the water phantom from my generated EXP_seed_1.m file but the calculated dose values as a function of z are relatively constant! How come the dose does not decrease as a function of z?
