Title: A Geant4 simulation of the depth dose percentage in brain tumors treatments using protons and carbon ions

Abstract

The deposited energy and dose distribution of beams of protons and carbon over a head are simulated using the free tool package Geant4 and the data analysis package ROOT-C++. The present work shows a methodology to understand the microscopical process occurring in a session of hadron-therapy using advance simulation tools.
