AbstractThe present study introduces LEPTS, an event-by-event Monte Carlo programme, for simulating an ophthalmic 106Ru/106Rh applicator relevant in brachytherapy of ocular tumours. The distinctive characteristics of this code are the underlying radiation-matter interaction models that distinguish elastic and several kinds of inelastic collisions, as well as the use of mostly experimental input data. Special emphasis is placed on the treatment of low-energy electrons for generally being responsible for the deposition of a large portion of the total energy imparted to matter. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
