Dear Carlos,

it means that for these events there was no Compton scatter in the volumes that were declared as PhantomSD. Those events that have comptVolName set to NULL, will also have a value of zero for nPhantomCompton. Generally, you can only retrieve information on scatter inside those volumes that have a PhantomSD attached.

Best regards,

Hi gateusers,

Can you please clarify if NULL in comptVolName means that there was no compton scatter? or is it that it scattered but GATE doesn't recognize the name of the volume?
