Monte Carlo Packages

tMCimg uses a Monte Carlo algorithm to model the transport of photons through 3D highly volumes with spatially varying optical properties and arbitrary boundary conditions.

Monte Carlo eXtreme (MCX) is Monte-Carlo simulation software for modeling photon migration in 3D turbid media. Using GPU-based massively parallel computing techniques, it is extremely fast compared to traditional CPU-based simulation. The acceleration rate is approximately 100 to 300 on a modern graphics card.
