Dear Edward,

I think you should look into the documentation section Radiotherapy
applications from
Especially Readout parameters for Radiotherapy applications:

Some actors such as
* Electromagnetic (EM) properties
* Track length
* Delta kinetic energy
could be helpful for you.

You can also use the "filter" capabilities for a specific particle.

Hope this helps!
