Paper Abstract

A Monte Carlo simulation program with graphic user interface has been developed under Windows environment by Visual C++. The parameters of media and certain type of source-detector geometry can be set flexibly for different simulation conditions and purposes. Through graphical user interface, Monte Carlo modeling of photon migration process in tissue is displayed during simulation. Also the computation results can be visualized directly after simulation. The aims of work is to develop an integrated Monte Carlo Simulation environment which makes the computation of the complex process of photon-tissue interaction more intuitive and understandable.
