Radiation protection will rely heavily upon computer simulation for the evaluation of new and complex exposure scenarios in the future. In particular, it will find increasing application in: the design and verification of new facilities and plant where shielding needs to be optimised; in the reconstruction of radiation incidents; and in radiation worker training. Computer simulation is used widely in fields outside of radiation protection, where radiation sources and humans are in close proximity, most notably medicine, and specifically radiotherapy in its various forms.
