TILDA-V: A full-differential code for proton tracking in biological matter
Understanding the radiation-induced effects at the cellular level is of prime importance for predicting the fate of irradiated biological organisms. Thus, whether it is in radiobiology to identify the DNA critical lesions or in medicine to adapt the radio-therapeutic protocols, an accurate knowledge of the numerous interactions induced by charged particles in living matter is required. Monte-Carlo track-structure simulations represent the most suitable and powerful tools, in particular for modelling the full slowing-down of the ionizing particles in biological matter. Furthermore more of the existing codes are based on semi-empirical cross sections as well as the use of water as surrogate of the biological matter.
