Abstract: As a result of photon interaction with matter, a SPECT image is affected by attenuation, scatter and statistical noise. In clinical practice, scatter correction is still a problem to be solved. In the present report, Monte Carlo techniques are used to obtain a database of SPECT simulated studies in order to evaluate the importance of scatter correction in Parkinson's Disease diagnosis. Even though scatter correction allows for obtaining better results, in some cases, when standardization is performed, it does not introduce a big improvement.
