Dear Dragos,

In nearly all Geant4 simulations no lateral displacement is applied at a boundary.  There has recently been an experimental mode of MSc which tries to apply such a ‘correction’, but it experimental and valid only in certain types of geometries.

If you use the single-scattering mode of MSC, then these kinks should disappear.  So checking this will be a good confirmation.

By the way, it was my long-time Geant4 colleague John Allison who responded about visualisation.
