Monte-Carlo methods have been applied to the design of a detector suitable for use in a SPECT cylindrically shaped scintillation camera. Included in the study are the calculated detection characteristics of two scintillator materials and the optical performance of several geometric configurations. Results include maps of the light distribution for several rectangular crystal-light guide combinations, a comparison of various approaches to specifying the optical properties of detector surfaces, and estimates of relative light output for various geometries.
