AB - Geometric sensitivity for single photon emission computerized tomography(SPECT) is given by a double integral over the detection plane. Itwould be useful to be able to explicitly evaluate this quantity. This papershows that the inner integral can be evaluated in the situation wherethere is no gamma ray penetration of the material surrounding the pinholeaperture. This is done by converting the integral to an integral inthe complex plane and using Cauchy's theorem to replace it by one whichcan be evaluated in terms of elliptic functions.
