PIGE (Particle Induced Gamma-ray Emission) is a nuclear technique for detecting the percentage of light elements by gamma-ray characteristic. Present research discusses the possibility of detecting iron and other elements in the blood by using PIGE method with 20-25 MeV proton beam.The proton source and the blood elements were defined in the input file of the MCNPX code. The characteristics of gamma-rays for each blood elements were calculated by *F8 Tally in a SiPM detector. The percentage of iron in blood is also formulated versus the detector response in the characteristic of gamma ray for iron. The results indicate that PIGE method with the 25 MeV energy of proton-induced is ideally suitable for detection iron and elements in blood.
