Fully two-dimensional gamma-ray imaging with simultaneous high-resolution spectroscopy using an externally segmented germanium sensor has been demonstrated in the laboratory with a calibrated radioactive source. The system employs a single high-purity coaxial detector with its outer electrode segmented into five distinct charge collection regions and a lead coded aperture, with a uniformly redundant array (URA) pattern. A series of one-dimensional responses was collected around 511 keV while the system was rotated in steps through 180°. A nonnegative, linear least-squares algorithm was then employed to reconstruct a two-dimensional image. Corrections for multiple scattering in the detector, and the finite distance of source and detector are made in the reconstruction process
