hello Zach,

Thanks for your quick reply.

My NaI scintillator is quite small, a cylinder of 38mm diameter and 50mm height. I took the density from the G4 material database. I am attaching the code that I am using to calculate the energy deposited.

the code was initially written for multiple layers, so there are notations like FirstDet, SecondDet and so on. but essentiall, the logic for scoring in each region is the same. I am not very sure if this is a right method, as I am not well acquainted with the scoring techniques in geant4.

I do not know how the getEDEP() function, which gets the energy deposited in each hit, works. But, I have used it in this code, and I feel that may be the reason for wrong scoring.
