Question Checking if certain coordinate is inside a certain volume

Before starting to shoot gamma rays in my PrimaryGeneratorAction, I need to know if the direction I am shooting is pointing at a certain complex solid not described by any one equation. So I need to have a method for which I input a 3D coordinate, and it tells me if I am in a certain physical volume. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!
