Paper Abstract

A method for imaging a target with Compton scattered gamma radiation is presented. This method accepts simultaneously, in the detector energy spectrum, radiation scattered from the entire target in a single measurement. The energy spectrum provides the information necessary for reconstructing the electron density distribution within the target. Models on which the reconstruction process is based are presented and tested against Monte Carlo simulation and experimental data. Image reconstruction from simulations demonstrate the feasibility of the method. The problems encountered in reconstructing images from experimental spectra are addressed along with some workable solutions.
