Abstract: The study of interaction of radiation with matter is a field of great interest in the medical physics. The computational simulation tools as Monte Carlo have been used in this field. The Geant4 code is a toolkit that incorporates several physical processes and particles which allow its application in medical physics, in particular, in the area of radiotherapy. In this work we performed simulations of monoenergetic electrons and photons beams in the energy range used in radiotherapy, and compared the results with results already published and others methods largely tested. The simulated results of range and stopping power of electrons were very close of published, the simulated results to photons results presentaccuracies <1% showing that Geant4 is appropriated to electrons and photons simulations with energy in the range of radiotherapy. © 2013 Springer.
