Hi Ali,

I am a beginner, but what I do is take the dose.out output and make it an array (1 column voxel numbers, 1 column dose deposited). I then create an array of all voxels in which lung is present. Then I search the dose output array for these voxel numbers and iteratively add up the dose. I use octave to do this (it is free and similar to MATLAB).

My problem, though, is the deposited dose seems to be drastically (at least 4 orders of magnitude) lower than what is predicted in other simulations. Let me know if you experience the same problem. Thanks!

Hope this may be of some help to you, Mike
