Abstract

In order to improve the performance of a Ge Compton camera system, γ-ray tracking technique which determines the γ-ray multi-scattering sequence in a crystal is implemented. Using this tracking technique with optimized parameters, imaging sensitivity increases by a factor of 3.7 in the case of 1115-keV γ-ray energy.
