Dear elnaz,

I am encountering a very similar problem in my work. I am also interested in the creation of positron emitters through hadrontherapy and wondered if you had found a solution to this problem.

I am trying to identify where positrons have originated from i.e. which atom: oxygen, carbon, nitrogen etc.

I am also a little uncertain about my physics list, I am not sure I am including all the necessary reactions. Could you tell me the name of the physics class which creates the oxygen 15?

If you are still working on this, I think we will have a lot we could discuss and should do this outside of the geant4 forum. Please feel free to email me directly if you wish.

I also have a similar thread where I was asking about this information, but so far have found quite the information I want.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Dave Oxley
