Single plane Compton imaging (SPCI) is a novel approach to medical imaging of gamma radiation . The possible range of applications includes nuclear imaging and range verification in proton therapy. For the purpose of image reconstruction, a software tool written in ROOT  and named SPCI-Reconstruction  has been developed. The implementation features the well-established MLEM algorithm for binned data  as well as a Monte-Carlo based algorithm called Origin Ensemble . Given a precalculated system matrix and a file containing the measurements, the emission densities of the gamma radiation source can be backprojected into a voxel-based image space.
