Re: Question G4PSDoseDeposit and G4PSEnergyDeposit classes (Nesin Menduev)

Hi Nesin,

These values are given in Geant4 internal units.
To get the values in your favorite units, you need
to divide the values with the units. For example
for the dose deposit, you need to divide by "gray"
or any related unit of absorbed dose [L^2][T^-2].
These unit values are defined in=20

We are sorry for this inconvenience. We plan to
improve the usage of scorers by adding an argument
in its constructor and also a parameter in its
corresponding UI command to let the user define
the unit to be used for that particular scorer.
This improvement should be made in this year.

Makoto Asai
