A comparison of cellular irradiation techniques with alpha particles using the GEANT4 Monte Carlo simulation toolkit

Abstract : A comparison of three cellular irradiation techniques using the Monte Carlo simulation toolkit Geant4 is presented in this paper. They involve electrodeposited source of alpha particle-emitting radionuclides, random classical alpha beam irradiation and single cell targeted irradiation using a focused alpha microbeam line. The simulation allows the calculation of hit distributions among the cellular population as well as the absorbed dose for two typical cellular geometries.
