Title: Trabecula: A Random Generator of Computational Phantoms for Bone Marrow Dosimetry

Abstract

This study was motivated by the efforts on evaluation of radiation risk for leukemia incidence in the Techa River Cohort, where the main bone marrow dose contributors were 89,90Sr (bone-seeking beta emitters). Energy deposition in bone marrow targets was evaluated by simulating radiation particle transport using computational phantoms. The present paper describes the computer program “Trabecula” implementing an algorithm for parametric generation of computational phantoms, which serve as the basis for calculating bone marrow doses. “Trabecula” is a user-friendly tool that automatically converts analytical models into voxelized representations that are directly compatible as input to MCNP.
