If yout just want to record the energy of gamma particles passing through a volume(water for instance) using Scoring functionality, I suggest you can use the example RE03, it is one of the Geant 4 examples in the "Run and Event" folder. It will enable you to record and measure the energy deposition in each pixel of your detector. i hope that it will help.

kind regards

Hi Ibrahym

Yes, i've already studied this example to understand how to use Scorer functionalities. But energyDeposit function will record the sum of binding energy + electron Kinetic energy, and if the phantom isn't enough dense, electrons created by photoelectric effect for instance could cover a certain distance before to be absorbed, so the (spatial)information(eDep)recorded in the detector is not correct.

In addition, if a gamma particle doesn't react at the exit of the phantom(where i would like to record the gamma energy, i cannot use energyDeposit function.

Until then, i've used a Lead wall(to be sure gamma with be absorded) placed behind the phantom and i used the energyDeposit function of scoring. But it stil a indirect method.

It seems "Scoring" cannot record Kinetic energy directly. Do you have any idea how i can extract this information?

Thanks again,
