In this study, we validated the effectiveness of using a message passing interface (MPI) method in reducing computation time and enhancing calculation accuracy. A chest and abdominal X-ray computed tomography scan was simulated. Our results indicated that the MPI method was accurately incorporated into the Electron Gamma Shower ver. 5 (EGS5) MC code. The MPI method could reduce computation time from 34 hours to 6 hours. We believe that MC simulation is going to be used widely. Therefore, incorporating the MPI method into EGS5 is very useful for EGS5 users.
