Caterina Cuccagna (TERA Foundation (IT))


Fluka simulations to optimize the distance between the isocenter and the position of the last scanning magnet in order to reduce the skin dose to the patient. Technical peculiarities: -Integration between FLUKA and TRAVEL, a multi-particle tracking software developed at CERN. -Dose simulations in phantoms/patients performed using a simulated beam from a proton Linac for therapy, with an active scanning system and Bragg's Peak spot depth variations obtained varying the energy in the Linac. -Implementation of the rotation of a gantry in FLUKA.
