Neutron fluence-to-organ dose conversion coefficients (DCCs) were calculated for a Reference Korean-adjusted male voxel model, HDRK-Man, for some standard irradiation geometries of external neutron beams using the Monte Carlo radiation transport code MCNPX. The calculated values were compared with those for other models. The results show that HDRK-Man provides consistent results for the DCC values considering the differences in the voxel models.
