Abstract. The NDeGRA project is researching the application of novel technologies in the development of position-sensitive detectors for gamma ray astronomy and medical imaging.

The project's approach to simulation and some preliminary results on the upper limit of efficiency of a Compton camera design based on monolithic scintillator crystals are discussed.
