ABSTRACT: Radiological Interventions involve high ionizing radiation doses exposition as much for the patient as for the health staff located at the treatment room. As result, many questions are present about the necessity of using new methods that allow us to reduce the derivate risks from this exposition. Monte Carlo simulation is a method that allows to accurately determine the received dose from the irradiated individuals without direct measurement. This work briefly reviews the conceptual and potential role of the Monte Carlo simulations, its historical development and computational aspects related to randomness. It is emphasized for applications in radiology and in clinically applied methods to be available for the medical community.
KEY WORDS: radiological protection, dosimetry, Monte Carlo simulation, stochastic phenomena
