This section proposes some exercises. Simulations are organized in a folder, with the following subfolders : data, mac and output. Macros files are stored in mac. Gate must be run in the initial simulation folder, such as : Gate mac/main.mac (don't forget the mac/). The macros that make use of data must refer to the data/ subfolder. The general idea it to try to understand every commands in the macro files to be able to analyze the results.

Simulations macros may be found in this (zip file). Below is the list of available exercises :

Exercise 1 - Photon beam - DoseActor
Exercise 2 - Photon beam - DoseActor - TranslateTheImageAtThisIsoCenter
Exercise 3 - 100 MeV proton beam -  DoseActor
Exercise 4 - Simulation of a linac head - PhaseSpaceActor
Exercise 5 - Dose deposition of a low energy x-ray irradiation - Track Length Estimator - DoseActor
Exercise 6 - Targeted radionuclide therapy - Source of Yttrium90 - EnergySpectrumActor - PhaseSpaceActor -  Use of a voxelized source
Exercise 7 - Simulate the acquisition of a x-ray cone-beam radiography - FluenceActor (photon counting) 
Exercise 8 - SPECT
