Fast modelling of the collimator-detector response in Monte Carlo simulation of SPECT imaging using the angular response function.

Abstract

Interactions of incident photons with the collimator and detector, including septal penetration, scatter and x-ray fluorescence, are significant sources of image degradation in applications of SPECT including dual isotope imaging and imaging using radioisotopes that emit high- or medium-energy photons. Modelling these interactions using full Monte Carlo (MC… (More)
