Dear Yuri,

I've used the RAY many-many years ago, so as far as I remember
the answer is yes, you can use the RAY particle for any geometry including voxel.
It will report in a file the regions, distance, material plus some other quantities
for everything that will intersect the ray's path. You have to make your own custom
analysis program to convert to WET.

Subject: [fluka-discuss]: FLUKA Ray tracing

Dear Fluka experts,

is it possible to use FLUKA (maybe the "ray pseudoparticle"?) as a kind of ray tracing algorithm in a CT voxel geometry? The goal is to calculate water equivalent thickness (WET) inside the CT, in the best case a ROI mask will be extracted from the RTSRUCT and the WET will be calculated only in the voxels belonging to this ROI. Any ideas and suggestions?
