The goal of the PODIUM project is to develop a software application that allows calculating the radiation worker doses of interest by combining positioning information from a staff monitoring system and information on the radiation field. The aim is to provide fast dose calculations for workers moving in realistic workplace fields. These calculations will be based on Monte Carlo (MC) methods and need to employ a variety of computational body phantoms, assuming various postures inside the radiation field (e.g., standing, bending over something, hands stretched out into the radiation field) and having different body statures (tall, small, broad). This deliverable describes the various phantoms that were developed for this purpose, and that will be used during the PODIUM project. The computational phantoms for the MC calculations of this project encompass the following: Boundary representation (BREP) phantoms will be used to assume various postures in a workplace field, and several voxel phantoms are representing various body statures.
