This is unfortunately a recurring question. As the STIR web-page says, the
LMF.zip code you found there is incomplete. You would have to dive in and
change it (check the comments) in the file.

I have heard people saying that GATE now distributes a utility to produce
STIR compatible sinograms, but I cannot find it.  The Gate wiki mentions
that their LMF tool can do this
but I don't see any end-user code in there. LMF 3.0 does have the hooks used
in the LMF.zip proto-code on the STIR website.

Ross Schmidtlein (MSKCC) has some code to go from ROOT to STIR sinograms
that he's willing to distribute.

If the tool doesn't exist yet, you sure could help by getting your hands
dirty. A lot of what you need to know was on recent posts on the stir
