We have written a Monte Carlo code to simulate the experimental results of a previously reported study. We were able to analyse the energy distributions of photons that reached the detector system after suffering several successive Compton scatterings in the target. We have also investigated how the number of multiply backscattered events depends on the target thickness and the energy of the primary photons.
