Interactions of Particles with Matter
As already described, regional microdosimetry is concerned with the stochastics of energy deposition in specified sites. Once the target is defined as a physical ensemble (composition, geometry, etc) the problem is reduced to studying the probability of interaction of particles with the target system — an exercise in quantum mechanics.
