Exercises

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.

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 - Brachytherapy treatment

Examples located in the GATE examples directory

These examples are located in the folder : Gate/examples/example_Radiotherapy/.

Proton therapy

   Example 4 : Beam optics simulation in vacuum for a pencil beam + depth-dose profile in water. A root macro is provided to analysis the produced phase space files (PhS-Analysis.C).
   Example 5 : Treatment plan simulation of proton active scanning beam delivery (TPSPencilBeam source). A root macro is provided to analysis the produced phase space files (PhS-Analysis.C).
   Example 6 : Example of proton pencil beam in heterogeneous phantom (water, bones, Lung) with Pencil Beam Scanning source: comparison between dose to water and dose to dose to medium.

Carbon ion therapy

   Example 1 : Example of Carbon beam in water tank or in patient CT image. Output is a 3D dose distribution map (with associated statistical uncertainty) and map of produced C11.

Photon/electron therapy

   Example 2 : Example of photon beam in patient CT image. Output is a 3D dose distribution map (with associated uncertainty). Two different navigators are tested NestedParameterized and Regionalized, with two number of materials).
   Example 3 : Example of photon beam in patient CT image with IMRT irradiation. 100 slices with different MLC positions.
   Example 7 : Example to use repeater/mover and both at the same time.
   Example 8 : Photon beam from a Linac into a box with water/alu/lung. See Figure4 from [Jan et al PMB 2011].
   Example 9 : Electron beam from a Linac into a box with water/alu/lung. See Figure5 from [Jan et al PMB 2011].

Radiography

   Example 10 : Radiography of a thorax phantom. Outputs are 3D dose distribution maps computed with the classical method and the accelerated (TLE) method.
