Double scattering and pencil beam scanning Monte Carlo workflows for proton therapy retrospective studies on radiation-induced toxicities

CONCLUSION: The results demonstrate that the Monte Carlo method can be used to independently validate a TPS calculation, and to estimate LET distributions. The features of the in-house tool can be used to correlate LET and RBE-weighted dose distributions with the incidence of radiation-induced toxicities following proton therapy treatments.PMID:37164897 | DOI:10.1016/j.canrad.2023.02.001
