Monte Carlo simulation is an accurate way of assessing radiotherapy dose distribution in nonhomogeneous volumes, but it requires long processing times. A new distribution model simulates radiotherapy treatments and runs on a PC network, which reduces the processing time and makes for a powerful treatment-verification tool.
