I spent the last few days playing with matplotlib, a nice graphics package for Python. The result, which is basically what I needed to accomplish, is below. I just need to scale the data properly, which is easy using the Python classes I wrote to encapsulate the dose and phantom outputs of EGSnrc, the Monte Carlo dose calculation code I use. Oh, and don’t worry: that’s not a real head. It’s a “phantom”, an artificial head made of plastic with a real skull, jaw bone, and teeth embedded into it.
