AUXSCORE


    allows to associate scoring detectors of given estimator types with dose
    equivalent conversion factors and to filter scoring detectors according to
    auxiliary (generalised) particle distributions or ion isotopic ranges.

    See also EVENTBIN, USRBDX, USRBIN, USRTRACK, USRCOLL, USRYIELD

     
WHAT(1)
: binning / estimator type to associate the card with 1.0 : USRBDX 2.0 : USRBIN / EVENTBIN (only for binning of quantities scored along a step, see Note 6) 3.0 : USRTRACK 4.0 : USRCOLL 5.0 : USRYIELD
Default
= 2.0 USRBIN/EVENTBIN
WHAT(2)
: particle (or particle family) to be considered as a filter for the associated scoring card > -100.0 : particle or particle family code <= -100.0 Isotope coding (to filter ions). To select atomic number Z, mass number A and isomeric state M:
WHAT(2)
= -(Z*100 + A*100000 + M*100000000). Z = 0 means all atomic numbers for the given A, A = 0 includes all mass numbers for a given Z, M = 0 includes all ground and isomeric states. To select only the ground state set M = 9
Default
= 201.0: all particles (ALL-PART)
WHAT(3)
: not used
WHAT(4)
: lower bound index (or corresponding name) of the indices of the detectors in which the associated scoring is activated (see Note 1) ("From detector
WHAT(4)
....")
Default
= 1.0
WHAT(5)
: upper bound index (or corresponding name) of the indices of the detectors in which the associated scoring is activated (see Note 1) ("to detector
WHAT(5)
....")
Default
=
WHAT(4)
WHAT(6)
= step length in assigning indices ("in steps of
WHAT(6)
")
Default
: 1.0
SDUM
: For dose equivalent (DOSE-EQ) scoring, the user can provide the energy-dependent coefficients for the conversion of fluence to effective dose and ambient dose equivalent for neutrons, protons, charged pions, muons, photons and electrons [Roe06,Pel00]. The following dose conversion coefficients sets are available: 1) Effective dose sets from ICRP74 and Pelliccioni data [Pel00] calculated with ICRP radiation weighting factors Wr (a) EAP74 : Anterior-Posterior irradiation (b) ERT74 : Rotational irradiation geometry (c) EWT74 : WORST possible geometry for the irradiation 2) Effective dose sets from ICRP74 and Pelliccioni data calculated with the Pelliccioni radiation weighting factors Wr (a) EAPMP : Anterior-Posterior irradiation (b) ERTMP : Rotational irradiation geometry (c) EWTMP : WORST possible geometry for the irradiation 3) Ambient dose equivalent from ICRP74 and Pelliccioni data (a) AMB74 4) Ambient dose equivalent with old "GRS"-conversion factors (a) AMBGS
Default
: AMB74
Default
(DOSE-EQ scoring and option AUXSCORE not given): AMB74
Notes:
1) USRBIN/EVENTBIN detectors are counted together, and so are USRTRACK and USRCOLL. 2) Conversion coefficients for Effective Dose "WORST" irradiation geometry are obtained choosing at each energy the largest value of the coefficients for the other geometries. 3) For photons and electrons, only the sets EAP74, ERT74, EWT74 and AMB74 are implemented. If sets from the second group (EAPMP, ERTMP, EWTMP) are requested, the respective set from the first group will be used instead. For set AMBGS, zero values are returned. 4) Dose conversion coefficients exist only for some particle types: hadrons, muons, photons, electrons/positrons. For all other particle types, zero factor will be returned. This is particularly important for heavy ions where zero factor will be scored (see Note 5) 5) For particles such as heavy ions, for which fluence conversion factors are not available, it is possible to score with USRBIN the generalised particle DOSEQLET, i.e. dose equivalent as defined by ICRU: H = D x Q(L), where L is the unrestricted Linear Energy Transfer in water. 6) A USRBIN/EVENTBIN detector can be associated to AUXSCORE only if the binned quantity is scored along a step (10.0 <=
WHAT(1)
<= 18.0). In particular, AUXSCORE cannot be used to filter activity or specific activity. Examples:
