A') have you search the mailling list archives ? there is a lot of help about using Ncat/Moby with Gate.
A'') could you post your *.mac file ?

B) translation table : you mean mu att. coef. ? for 140/511KeV ? 
I think this is include in Gate/Ncat. I need to check this.

Best regards, 

Samuel Burg

Objet : [Gate-users] Question for NCAT users


I have a couple of doubts regarding setting the Voxelized NCAT phantom. 

a) As you know, the NCAT software produces the activity and the attenuation data simultaneously. I am trying to figure out the use of these data files in Gate. I planned to use the attenuation file as the Voxelized phantom, and the activity file as the Voxelized source...both in interfile format. The simulation ran without error...but the sinograms turned out to be null. What is the general practice for setting the vox. phantom and source with respect to NCAT ( or any other voxelized phantom for that matter). 
Also, what is the deal with setting the position of the vox. source.../gate/source/voxel/setPosition -128. -128. _ _ 
In the huffman brain phantom example...the position was set to -128. -128 -55. So if I have 92 128 x 128 slices...do I set it to -128 -128 -92 ? It does not quite make sense with the explanation given in the user guide. I was really hoping someone would explain this to me...even though this is rather silly question.

b) This one is regarding the range translation tables. Could someone provide me with a working range tables for both voxelized phantom and source in the case of NCAT data. This would be a big help.
