Re: Dose rates from certain regions only

That's right. Just one precision. There is tracking through the 'vacuumed' region,
but the gamma rays just go 'through' it, and therefore there will be no energy
deposition or attenuation, as you stated, because the region will be like
vacuum for the decay gammas.
