Servizio di Fisica Sanitaria, Azienda Ospedaliera S. Giovanni Battista, Molinette, Torino. PURPOSE: We investigated the practical application of a calculation algorithm based on the Monte Carlo method to stereotactic radiosurgery treatment planning. In radiosurgery, high dose gradients and the lack of electronic disequilibrium make high resolution matrices and high computing power and speed necessary to obtain accurate dose distribution. To date, the main obstacle to the wider-spread use of the Monte Carlo method has been the huge computing time necessary to obtain a dose distribution on current hardware. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this project, developed within the ESPRIT program, funded by the European Union, a Parsytec CC (Cognitive Computing) computer was used with 9 processors (Power PC 604, 133 Mhz, RAM 64 Mb) with IBM AIX/E...
