Three Monte Carlo gamma transport codes, MCNP, EGS, PHOTON, differ in the degree of difficulty in implementing them for calculation and in the requirements for the input file. Differences in the results were discovered when evaluating the same case using these three transport codes. These differences that are energy dependent are presented here.
