Abstract
In this study, a scatter model is proposed for parallel, fan, and conebeam SPECT imaging. In this model, a photon is allowed to be scattered only once, and the probability of scatter for given angle and energy is computed by using the KleinNishina formula. The detector is assumed to have perfect energy resolution. The scatter counts are computed for every projection bin. From the scatter counts, the scatter linesource response function and scattertoprimary ratio (SPR) are obtained. They agree well with those from Monte Carlo (MC) simulation including only single scattering, but deviate from those from full MC simulation including both single and multiple scattering. The deviation depends on the source depth within the medium. For a source depth of 6 cm, the difference of the scattertoprimary ratio between the model andfull MC simulation is less than 7%, while for a 21.6 cm source depth,the difference goes up to 27% for parallelbeam geometry and 32% for conebeam geometry. Since scatter accounts for 2040% of the total counts in most clinical studies, the scatter model yields a SPR accuracy that ranges from 3% to 12%. The scatter model provides an effective means to estimate the scatter response with reasonable accuracy, and canbe used in developing scatter compensation techniques in parallel and convergingbeam SPECT.
