None How can people do proton beam therapy simulation?

 I'm studying for simlating proton therapy detector and impact on human.

 But the more studying Geant4, the more i have curiosity.

 I think Geant4 don't support Interactions between beams.

 So, electron beams don't force coulomb force on other electrons beam.

 So, Here's my question.

 I have heard a lot of time about using geant4 for proton therapy simulation.

 I can people know the proton path ?
 (I think Since geant4 don't support the interactions between proton beams, the proton path on geant4 is not going to be similar to the real proton path.)

 How people can calibrate these things?
