None How can I expect the right proper path of proton beam?

Hello~^^
 I'm studying for simulating proton therapy and impacts on human.
 But the more studying Geant4, the more i have curiosities.

 I think Geant4 don't support Interactions between beams.
 So, electron(or proton) beams don't force coulomb force on other electrons beam.

 I have heard a lot of time about using geant4 for proton therapy simulation.

 So, Here's my question.
 How can people know proper path of proton beams ?
 (I think Since geant4 don't support the interactions between proton beams, the proton path on geant4 is not going to be similar to the real proton path.)

 How people can calibrate these things?
