Experiments in Moving Toward a Feasible Strip-PET Scanner
MetadataShow full item record
For many years, PET scanning devices have been effective in many areas of medicine, particularly in functional imaging and detection of cancer. However, the most common designs are costly, and could be made more efficient. Recently, a new design has been proposed, involving longer detectors and uncommonly used scintillating materials. We are building and testing small examples of this type of setup, in the hopes of determining accuracy, viable methods of operation, and overall feasibility.
