[Gate-users] Volume IDs for Generic "Scanner" System

Hello all,

Does anyone have an idea about this? How to get volume IDs for singles when using a generic "scanner" system type?

All - I am completely stuck.
I'm using a generic "scanner" system type, and would like to have multiple sensitive detectors in a mother volume for internal dosimetry.

If I have two SDs as daughters of the "world", all is OK - I get a singles output file with 0 or 1 in column 7 and 0 for columns 8 through 12 (easily telling me which SD registered the single).

If, however, I have a volume in the world with the two SDs inside it (and daughters of it instead of being daughters of the "world"), I get 0 for all columns 7-12. The simulation does record singles to each SD (based on coordinates), but it just doesn't tell me which volume ID each single is for!

I have attached simple sample code below as well as the output from the singles file.

Any help would be great! Thank you,
