Summary of "Use of an Imaging Spectrometer for Characterization of a Cesium Dosimeter Calibration Facility."

Past investigations into the characterization of a space-constrained Cs dosimetry calibration facility did not provide detailed positional measurements of gamma ray spectra. In this paper, a commercially available Compton imaging system, or imaging spectrometer, was used to accomplish this. This resulted in both spectral information and point of origin information for the measured gamma rays. The relationship between measured spectra and position was explored relative to a dosimetry phantom. The Compton equation was found to accurately describe the relationship for positions associated with larger scattering angles and was found to be less reliable for those associated with smaller angles.
