Abstract: Absorbed doses in uterus during brachytherapy were calculated with MCNP in relevant points and compared with planning system for one patients. MCNP was applied with two different humanoid phantoms in input, ORNL and voxel models, which represent human body in mathematical way. Good agreement between both phantoms, as well as, between MCNP and planning system were found. In addition the doses in critical organs (bladder and colon in this kind of therapy), were calculated and compared with maximal doses in these organs obtained from planning system for 15 other patients. MCNP doses agree well with planning system in points of uterus for those 15 patients, where radioactive source is used to apply. However, there are systematical discrepancies between doses in colon and bladder obtained by MCNP and planning system.
