New Paradigm in GPU-Based Monte Carlo Simulations for X-ray CT Imaging Doses

- A  new R01 project funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)


ARCHER (Accelerated Radiation-transport Computations in Heterogeneous EnviRonmentsis) is designed as a Monte Carlo software testbed for research to accelerate Monte Carlo using emerging hardware/software concepts such as the Nvidia GPUs and Intel Xeon Phi. Figure below illustrates the vision of the design.
