Abstract
To mitigate image degradation due to the finite spatial resolution of detectors, a new theory is developed that allows Compton cameras to be comprised of detectors that have no spatial resolution at all. The results of a computer simulation indicate that the new theory can be used to produce reasonable images at least when noiseless simulated data is used. Camera designs that can exploit the new theory for use in areas such as medicine and homeland security are presented. Although the results presented here are promising, further effort is needed to establish their usefulness with real data.
