Task Group 103
Mesh-type Reference Computational Phantoms (MRCP)

A Task Group under Committee 2

The mandate for this Task Group - Mesh-type Reference Computational Phantoms (MRCP) - will be focused on converting the current voxel-type reference computational phantoms into a high-quality mesh format to address the limitations of the voxel-type phantoms in some dose coefficient calculations.
Specific work will include:
  • The Task Group will develop the adult, paediatric and pregnant-female MRCPs. As a first step, the adult MRCPs will be developed by converting the existing voxel phantoms in Publication 110 into a high-quality mesh format. Then, the paediatric MRCPs will be developed from the paediatric voxel phantoms in Publication 143.
  • Finally, the pregnant-female MRCPs will be newly developed. All the development processes will be discussed among TG members and the developed phantoms will be comprehensively reviewed by anatomists.

Work completed to date: 

  • The adult MRCPs were completely developed and released in Publication 145 - Adult Mesh-type Reference Computational Phantoms.
  • The paediatric MRCPs were completely developed and the relevant report will be released soon as Publication 156 - Paediatric Mesh-type Reference Computational Phantoms.
  • Recently, the pregnant-female MRCPs were completely developed and the report is currently under preparation. Public consultation is expected in 2025.
