Gate Output J-PET Analyzer(GOJA)
Gate Output J-PET Analyzer(GOJA) developed and maintained by Pawel Kowalski, a member of J-PET collaboration, is a strong tool to analyze ?raw? data of Gate simulation. GOJA is written in C++ and Python and is able to analyze any ?list mode? output of J-PET Gate simulation. One of the most valuable output of GOJA is a list of the coincidence events which include information about hits positions, energy deposition and type of coincidences mainly tagged as true or scatter ones. These information can be use in image reconstruction.
A short two day workshop (23- 24 May, 2019) in learning the essentials of GOJA software was organized by Pawel Kowalski in Jagiellonian University. This workshop was divided mainly in two sections. First part was dedicated to learning the basics of software and its applications whereas second one was dedicated for questioning, discussion and hands on examples for the uses of software. In addition to GOJA, Pawel introduced a new interactive session called as simulation manager which merge the GOJA and GATE all in one for J-PET applications.
