Monte Carlo Simulation on Breast Cancer Detection Using Wire Mesh Collimator Gamma Camera

Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary results of the new low energy high resolution wire-mesh collimator gamma camera in mapping breast cancer cells, by employing 140 keV photons of Technetium-99 m radionuclide tracer. The complete model of photons propagation and detection, as well as the human cells activities are simulated using Monte Carlo N-Particle code… (More)
