None medical linac and PDD (percentage depth dose)

Hi,

1. I'm considering example of a medical linac in Geant4. How do I get data of depth dose in a phantom (PDD) ( x=0; y=0; z=n+1, n=1,2,3,4……mm) ? What do I need to register in the code?

2. I wrote the just example accelerator and the release of the absorbed dose in the water phantom, but the data are very poor, do not correspond at all to the measurements. I get the data through a sensitive detector (it's many layers of water), primary particles are electrons - fall on the photon target through the collimator fall on the detector

What should I pay attention to and what should I fix?
