FIG. 1.

Monte Carlo calculated total percentage dose versus depth for PRESAGE®, soft tissue (ICRP) and water.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Monte Carlo calculated total percentage dose versus WET for PRESAGE® and water. The discrepancy from water is shown on the right hand scale.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Monte Carlo calculated percentage depth-dose profiles normalized to total dose in the Bragg peak versus WET for (a) primary protons, (b) secondary protons, and (c) secondary electrons for PRESAGE® and water. The discrepancy from water is shown on the right hand scale.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Monte Carlo calculated total percentage dose versus TET for PRESAGE® and soft tissue (ICRP). The discrepancy from soft tissue is shown on the right hand scale.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Monte Carlo calculated percentage dose normalized to total dose in the Bragg peak versus TET for (a) primary protons, (b) secondary protons, and (c) secondary electrons for PRESAGE® and soft tissue (ICRP). The discrepancy from soft tissue is shown on the right hand scale.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Monte Carlo calculated total percentage dose versus (a) WET and (b) TET for PRESAGE®, soft tissue (ICRP) and water and their percentage discrepancies (right hand scale).

Image of FIG. 7.
FIG. 7.

Monte Carlo calculated normalized isodose contours of total deposited energy for (a) PRESAGE®, (b) soft tissue (ICRP), and (c) water.
