Abstract Protection against ionizing radiation requires information on the absorbed doses in organs of the human body. Implantation of many dosimeters in the human body is undesirable (or impossible), so the doses in organs are not measurable and some kind of dose calculation has to be applied. Calculation of doses in organs requests: (a) an exact description of the geometry of organs, (b) the chemical constitution of tissues, and (c) appropriate computer programs. The first two items, (a) and (b), ma... Title of program: Input files for program MCNP-4B [1] Catalogue Id: ADYF_v1_0 Nature of problem The human body and all organs are represented with equations of 3-D geometrical bodies. All equations and other relevant data (material composition, densities etc.) were programmed as input files for MCNP-4B. Seven data files are included in the distribution, AMALE, AFEMALE, AGE15, AGE10, AG5, AGE01, NEWB. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADYF_v1_0; Input files for program MCNP-4B [1]; 10.1016/j.cpc.2006.06.016 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
