The Monte Carlo method (MCNP) was used to simulate the absorbed dose distribution in an artificial kidney dialyzer product irradiated with 60Co gamma-rays for sterilization. The results showed that the relative deviation between the MCNP simulation value and the measured data was within ±15% and that the dose distribution laws of the two methods were similar. Predetermining the dose mapping of an artificial kidney dialyzer product during irradiation through MCNP simulation is useful. The MCNP simulation method provides valuable information for designing loading patterns and determining the minimum and maximum dose zones of the product.

Key words: Monte Carlo method (MCNP), Dose mapping, Loading pattern, Dose zones
