Hi everyone:

>From exploring thru lecture notes at CERN, I really like geant4  and I 
am excited about the effort of GATE. 

I plan to calculate dose on patients from X-ray CT based on input from 
DICOM files.

I would like to know:

1) If I would be better off using GEANT4 or GATE? 
2) What are the pro and cons of using one over the other?
3) If you think I should use forget about these two and use some other MC 
package, I would also welcome that suggestion.
All feedbacks are very much appreciated.  Thank you.

Best wishes,
Chee Liang
