GePEToS is a simulation framework developed over the last few years for assessing the instrumental performance of future positron emission tomography (PET) scanners. It is based on Geant4, written in object-oriented C++ and runs on Linux platforms. The validity of GePEToS has been tested on the well-known Siemens ECAT EXACT HR+ camera. The results of two application examples are presented: the design optimization of a liquid Xe μPET camera dedicated to small animal imaging as well as the evaluation of the effect of a strong axial magnetic field on the image resolution of a Concorde P4 μPET camera.
