Abstract
This paper reports the validation work concerning the Monte Carlo simulator we developed for Nuclear Medicine imaging. First we compared the simulated and acquired data of a Data Spectrum Thorax phantom. The two data sets agree fairly well but significant differences can be found at the pixel level. They are probably due to slightly different experimental conditions which are very difficult to control. Second we compared the simulated data obtained using three different interaction models. No difference could be found at the pixel level but image-wide energy spectra slightly differ.
