Figures

FIG. 1.

Scaled DPK (F) for 10 kev (a) and 1 MeV (b) electrons in water and for 10 kev (c) and 1 MeV (d) electrons in bone. F values are reported as a function of the reduced radius (r/R CSDA).

FIG. 2.

Comparison between fluka and  penelope v.2008 results vs other codes (etran, geant 4.8.2, and mcnpx v.2.5.0) for monoenergetic electrons: maximum percentage discrepancy between F values within 0.9·R CSDA(a), 0.8·R CSDA(b), and average discrepancy within 0.9·R CSDA(c).

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Scaled DPK (F) for 90Y (a) and 177 Lu (b) in water and for 90Y (c) and 177 Lu (d) in bone. F values are reported as a function of the reduced radius (r/X 90 ).
