Question Losing characteristic radiation, where is problem?

Hi All!

I'm simulating gamma rays of 662keV energy, which are appearing in the NaI detector. For self test, I take the detector with huge dimensions. After simulation, I thought, that I must get total energy deposit nearly equal to the initial 662keV. But nearly 10% of events are with energy ~629keV. In the output file I've found, that some of characteristic gamma rays (from shell of Iodium) are disappearing and don't interact with material of my detector. But with the other 90% everything is OK!

What's the problem? where is the mistake?

Thank you.
