Summary File

A regions summary file is always created. The filename can be specified by the argument of the -summary option or formed automatically by adding .summary to the value of the -root argument. The columns in this file contain information pertaining to regions, such as the label, the geometrical center of each region (calculated from the limits in the definition command), the volume (including any subtractions due to overlap with previously defined regions), the energy deposited by each type of particles, the fraction of the total beam energy deposited, and, if the beam power was specified, the radiation absorbed dose rate.
