[Gate-users] fast Y-90 source error

Hi Gate users

I am using fasty90 for SPECT scanning.  I am having some unusual errors.  I can run a cylindrical source and phantom with the circular end facing the camera with Tc99m and output an interfile with a circular output as expected.  When I change the isotope to fastY90 my image changes and I am getting an image of a line, I have tried to rotate the phantom (and source) and get two lines instead.  Is there anyone out there working with fasty90 that can shed any light?

My source code looks like:

# D E F I N E  T H E  S O U R C E
/gate/source/addSource SourceConfinement fastY90
/gate/source/SourceConfinement/gps/type Volume
/gate/source/SourceConfinement/gps/shape Cylinder
/gate/source/SourceConfinement/gps/radius 7.25 cm
/gate/source/SourceConfinement/gps/halfz 2.0 cm
#translation from world centre not camera face
/gate/source/SourceConfinement/gps/centre 0. 0. 0. cm
/gate/source/SourceConfinement/attachTo Phantom

/gate/source/SourceConfinement/setActivity 60.0 MBq
/gate/source/SourceConfinement/gps/angtype iso


Any help gratefully appreciated.
