Hadrontherapy represents a pioneer technique, and only few centers worldwide can provide this advanced and specialized cancer treatment. Geant4 (GEometry ANd Tracking 4) is a C++, free and open toolkit that used to simulate the interaction of particles in matter. It is employed in various fields from high-energy physics, nuclear physics to medicine. By means of Monte Carlo simulation tool Geant4, we have simulated the hadrontherapy beam line typical of a proton-therapy line modeled in the category of the advanced examples with all its elements: the diffusers, range shifters, collimators and detectors. This Simulation has permited the calculation of dose and Linear Energy Transfer (LET). In this context, this study reports the first results of our simulation realized by means of Geant4 10.2 version and their comparizon with those obteined by Cironne.

Hadrontherapy öncü bir tekniktir ve dünya çapında sadece birkaç merkez bu ileri ve uzmanlaşmış kanser tedavisini sağlayabilir. Geant4 (GEometry ANd Tracking 4), parçacıkların madde içindeki etkileşimini simüle etmek için kullanılan C ++, ücretsiz ve açık bir araç kitidir. Yüksek enerji fiziği, nükleer fizik ve tıbbın çeşitli alanlarında kullanılmaktadır. Çalışmada, Monte Carlo simülasyon aracı Geant4 ile, gelişmiş unsurlar kategorisinde modellenen bir proton-tedavi hattının tipik tüm unsurları olan difüzörler, aralık değiştiriciler, kolimatörler ve detektörler ile simronterapi ışın hattınının benzetimi yapıldı. Bu benzetim, doz ve Çizgisel Enerji Transferi (LET) hesaplamasına izin vermiştir. Bu bağlamda bu çalışmada, Geant4 10.2 sürümü ile gerçekleştirilen benzetimlerimizin ilk sonuçları ve bunların Cironne tarafından belirlenenlerle karşılaştırılması verilmiştir.
