Chapter 5 Rapid SPECT simulation of down-scatter in non-uniform media

Abstract

A rotation-based Monte Carlo (MC) simulation method (RMC) has been developed , designed for rapid calculation of down-scatter through non-uniform media in SPECT. A possible application is down-scatter correction in Dual Isotope SPECT. With RMC, only a fraction of all projections of a SPECT study has to be MC simulated in a standard manner. The other… (More)
