Question DICOM.cc: Question about g4material usage 

Forum: Medical Applications
Date: 14 Jun, 2016
From: Katya Gilbo <Katya Gilbo>

Hello Geant4 Users,

The DICOM.cc README writes that material groups can be created within a material:

"if DenseBone is from > 1.496 to <= 1.654 and DICOM_CHANGE_MATERIAL_DENSITY=0.079
         then DenseBone would be separated into DenseBone > 1.496 to <= 1.575 and DenseBone > 1.575 to <= 1.654"

but in the DicomDetectorConstruction.cc each material such as DenseBone has its own density like "1.575*g/cm3";

so which density is ultimately used???

I really appreciate your help! -Katya
