Title: Characteristics of the J-PET detector simulated using GATE software

Abstract: Novel PET system based on plastic scintillators is developed by the J-PET collaboration. In order to determine performance characteristics of built scanner prototype, advanced computer simulations must be performed. These characteristics are, among others, spatial resolution, scatter fraction and sensitivity. Methods of obtaining these characteristics and results of simulations will be presented during the lecture.
