Detection of prompt γ rays from nuclear interactions between a particle beam and organic tissue using a Compton camera to determine the Bragg peak position is a promising way of ion-beam range verification in hadron therapy. The Compton camera consists of a stack of six double-sided Si-strip detectors acting as scatterers, while the other essential part - the absorber - is made of a LaBr3 monolithic scintillator crystal (50×50×30 mm3) with reflective side-surface wrapping, offering excellent time and energy resolution. Scintillation light induced in the crystal is detected by a 256-fold segmented multi-anode PMT. Prerequisite to reconstruct the γ source position is the determination of the photon interaction position in the crystal by applying "k-nearest neighbors" algorithm (van Dam et al., Nuclear Science (2011)) using the reference library of light distributions, obtained by performing a 2D scan of the detector using a strong collimated 137Cs source. The status of the spatial resolution characterization will be presented.
