CONRAD intercomparison


The 2007 CONRAD WP4-WP5 intercomparison “Monte Carlo modelling for in-vivo measurements of Americium in a knee phantom” was part of the EURADOS project on the assessment of uncertainties in computational dosimetry. The intercomparison consisted of calculating photon energy fluences and also the spectra which would be detected with a Ge detector around the University of Cincinnati knee phantom containing Am-241. The calculated spectra were then compared with real experimental results.

Figure 1 shows the results obtained by VMC in-vivo in comparison with the experimental results.

Figure 2 shows the graphics of the counting of Am-241 in the knee.
