Gamma rays spectra for several sources, 22Na, 24Na, 60Co 137Cs and 241Am-be have been recorded with an anti-Compton spectrometer (ACS). To determine the system performance in terms of: detection efficiency, resolution and Compton suppression (CSF) at different gamma ray energies. To verify if an ACS would be worth considering for improving the emission spectrum obtained from prompt gammas. Where the prompt gammas are created during irradiation by hardon therapy. Which would allow for real time tracking of the beam range of these therapies. Where this would allow for improving precision of what issue is being irradiated. In this work it was found that the CSF in the Compton regions where of a factor of two up to three for high energy gamma rays.
