Spect pin hole collimator

Dear all
My name is Mauro and I have been working on gate since two weeks so far.
gate is not very easy for me and I need to construct a pinhole collimator geometry, but I can't understand how to write the volume about the pinhole.
Can anyone help me or give any general suggestion to me.
Thank You very much
Kind Regards
Mauro

Crosstalk and coincidence window

Hello all,

Does anyone know if the crosstalk option only applies to immediate neighbouring volumes, or if there is a
secondary effect also? What I means it, if I set crosstalk to my crystal array and put setEdgesFraction to
0.1, would the second neighbouring crystal see a fraction of 0.01, then the next 0.001 and so on?

I also have a question about the window for the coincidence sorter. In all examples I see, the window is set
simply with:

/gate/digitizer/Coincidences/setWindow X Y

However, whenever I attempt this, the command isn't found. Furthermore, the tree up to
/gate/digitizer/Coincidences isn't found when I look in qt mode. I can set the window if I first name and
insert a coincidenceSorter. Do I not have the Coincidences branch because I do not have updated versions
of my programs? I am using Gate v7.1, Geant4.10.01 (not the patch), root 5.34.30, and gcc 4.8.2. I am using
the internal CHLEP library.

Thanks for your help,
Devin Van Elburg

About how to measure the pulse pile-up for a PET using Gate

Hello everyone:
I am new to the field of PET. Is the pulse pile-up mainly caused by
dead time? If so, can the pulse pile-up be measured using Gate?
Looking forward to your reply. Thanks a lot!

Problem with env_gate.csh file

Dear Gaters

 i installed gate.v7.0 and Geant4.9.6

when i tried to run lmf.v.3.0 by follwoing the user guide and tied to creat LMF file from GATE i should recompile GATE from the main directory og GATE by using the command;

source env_gate.csh 

but i had an error message that showed this file was not found , then i searched about this file but i just found files for gate.v.1.0, gate.v.1.2, gate.v.3.1 and gatev.6.2, there is no such file for gate.v.7.0 

how can i get such file?

 regards

Re: installation error on mac

Dear Monica and  Tuoyo,

Gate 7.1 does not work with root 6.x.
You should try installing root version 5.32 or 5.34.
I tested Gate compilation with both succesfully.

Cheers,
Sara.

Hi,
   I have a problem when I using vGATE2.1. I want to get the LMF data. but when I run the example myPET_CylindrinalPET_System.mac,it only generate the myPET_testfile.cch,don't have the myPET_testfile.ccs. Could anyone tell me why?
