Abstract

Background: In this study, the dose distributions obtained by the algorithms used in Monaco treatment planning system (TPS) and Monte Carlo (MC) simulation were compared for small fields in the anthropomorphic RANDO phantom, and then, the results were analyzed using the gamma analysis method.
