Task Group 103 Mesh-type Reference Computational Phantoms (MRCP)
A Taskgroup under Committee 2
The mandate for this Task Group - Mesh-type Reference Computational Phantoms (MRCP) - will be focused on converting the current voxel-type reference computational phantoms into a high-quality mesh format to address the limitations of the voxel-type phantoms in some dose coefficient calculations.
Specific work will include:
development of mesh-type ICRP reference computational phantoms which have all source and target tissues including the details of the eyes and skin and the thin target tissues (10-300 micron) of the alimentary and respiratory tract organs,
use of these mesh-type phantoms to calculate external and internal dose coefficients to estimate the uncertainties of the current reference dose coefficients, especially for the dose coefficients calculated with stylized phantoms (eye lenses, skin, and alimentary and respiratory tract organs) for weekly penetrating radiations, and
demonstration of phantom posture change and related dose coefficient calculations.
