Abstract

Specific Effective Energies (SEEs) for children and young people can be calculated using Monte Carlo techniques in the same way as for adults, but using a phantom appropriate for a child. However, Adams has proposed an approximate method in which SEEs for adults are scaled for other ages. The results of the Adams method are compared with those which use age-specific phantoms.
