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,

L.LUO
