I’m trying to reproduce the result that published in Shin et al., 2021.
(Cancers | Free Full-Text | A Geant4-DNA Evaluation of Radiation-Induced DNA Damage on a Human Fibroblast)
The input macro file and the result are attached.
I used the same setting as in the paper, except the number of histories.
But the errors have already very small (within 0.1%).
I’ve run the example with 50 MeV and 4 MeV protons. (LET= 1.24 and 9.33 keV/um, respectively)
However, the results are a little bit different (The difference is larger than uncertainty).
Both SSB yield and DSB yield are larger than the results from paper.
Any comment will be appreciated!
