Free form source representation for a VR dosimetry training application

Abstract: A method to model free form nuclear sources in Virtual Reality (VR) based dosimetry applications for training purposes is presented in this paper. A VR based dosimetry application can provide advantages in terms of time, cost and logistics with respect to traditional on-site training courses, representing a valid complement to the traditional ones. In order to benefit from these advantages, methods need to be developed to overcome the requirements such a VR application requires, such as real time response and accuracy of dose rate computation. The developed method based on the prototype [1] provides both but limits the kind of source geometries that can be simulated, only allowing parallelepiped source volumes. This paper presents a new version of this prototype which implements a revised algorithm which can cope with free form sources, allowing the tool to be able to cope with other kind of geometries which are bound to be found in a real case like cylinders or spheres
