GATE Simulations for Benchmarking PEPT Algorithms

  • Matthew Herald (Creator)



A series of tests for Position Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT) algorithms are simulated using the Geant4 Application for Tomographic Emission (GATE). In these simulations, a positron-emitting source is prescribed to known locations. The Lines-of-Response (LoR) detected in a planar and ring geometry are recorded. The objective of this work is to provide a basis for comparing the performance of PEPT algorithms on identical data with ground-truth positions to compare against.
