The site http://www.vmcsoftware.com/in%20vivo.html has a free download of
the program VMC in-vivo which is simple to install and run. 

It has a number of phantoms, you choose the radionuclide and organ of
interest and a Ge or NaI detector, and it will give the calibration
coefficient and the gamma spectrum 

I have considerably improved the program VMC in-vivo, but have not yet had
the time to up-load it to the site., if anyone is interested, please reply
off-line to john at ird.gov.br

Assunto: [ RadSafe ] Spectroscopic human phantoms

I'm posting this for a colleague.  Is there anyone working on, or aware of
anyone working on phantoms that recreate the gamma radiation spectrum that a
human represents for in-vivo radionuclides?  We (LANL) did some work in
2005, but it didn't continue.   The work we did was presented at INMM in
2005 by S. Almecci.

I'm aware of the issues, etc. regarding radiation spectra from humans and
radiopharmaceuticals, and I'm sure there are opinions out there, but is
there any actual research being conducted, and if so, would you share it
with us?

Thanks in advance,
