Illustration of the three general calculation steps used in Radiotherapy Monte Carlo Treatment Planning (MCTP). S1 determines phase-space data after the primary linac collimators, S2 computes phase-space data after the secondary or multileaf collimators defining the radiation field, and S3 calculates the dose distribution for the patient-specific CT geometry.
