Краткий обзор статьи: Recent evidence for a large Galactic halo, based on cosmic-ray radioactive nuclei, implies a significant contribution from inverse Compton emission at high Galactic latitudes. We present predictions for the expected intensity distribution, and show that the EGRET gamma-ray latitude distribution is well reproduced from the plane to the poles. We show that the Galactic component at high latitudes may be comparable to the extragalactic emission in some energy ranges.
