Hi Sylvia,

You can not have "for free" the dose accumulation in your sensitive 
detectors all along a run : a run represents a sequence of events and 
sensitive detectors are refreshed at the end of each event (ie, their 
hits are cleared). But you have several ways to do make what you need 
working. For example (maybe there are cleaner solutions), you can decide 
to not have hits and hit collections (but still have sensitive 
detector). You can initialize an array in you "BeginOfRunAction", each 
element of which represents a voxel. Then, assuming each voxel has some 
ID number associated with it, in your sensitive detector code, get the 
current voxel number and accumulate the energy deposition in the 
corresponding array element. This array will then "survive" all along 
your run and the cells will contain the total energy deposited over all 
events of this run.

Hope this helps.
