Welcome to the Electron Gamma Shower (EGS) Web Page

The EGS computer code system is a general purpose package for the Monte Carlo simulation of the coupled transport of electrons and photons in an arbitrary geometry for particles with energies from a few keV up to several TeV. Some have referred to the EGS code as the de facto gold standard for clinical radiation dosimetry. The history and an overview of EGS code system is documented in the report NRC-PIRS-0436 (pdf or postscript). Click here for a free copy of Adobe's Acrobat Reader (for printing/viewing PDF files).

The main intent of this web site is to facilitate the distribution and installation of the EGS computer code system. This web site also serves as a means of communicating technical information, conference and workshops announcements, and other information that may be of interest to the EGS user community.
