Monte Carlo Model

A transverse cross-section of a modeled vertebra. The cylindrical drill hole is apparent in the CT scan image (left) and was modeled as a volume of radioactive bone cement (white circle) in the Monte Carlo model (right). Isodose lines (right) represent constant dose rates of 0.3 Gy/h/mCi, 0.5 Gy/h/mCi and 1.9 Gy/h/mCi, from the largest to the smallest circles
