Korean Computational Phantoms: KMIRD, KORMAN, KORWOMAN, KTMAN-1, KTMAN-2, and HDRK-Man

ByChoonsik Lee, Chan Hyeong Kim

In the vast majority of instances, direct measurement of radiation-absorbed dose to radiosensitive tissues within the human body is not feasible, and thus must be derived from measurable quantities with the assistance of dose conversion coef cients. Dose conversion coef cients, expressed as the organ-absorbed dose per unit entrance skin dose or air kerma, are in turn calculated via radiation transport simulations within computational anthropomorphic computational phantoms of the human body’s exterior and internal organ structure.
