Purpose Numerical simulations studying the interactions
between radiations and biological tissues require the use of
three-dimensional models of the human anatomy at various
ages and in various positions. Several detailed and flexible
models exist for adults and children and have been exten-
sively used for dosimetry. On the other hand, progress of
simulation studies focusing on pregnant women and the fetus
have been limited by the fact that only a small number of
models exist with rather coarse anatomical details and a poor
representation of the anatomical variability of the fetus shape
