In this paper, we propose a novel approach to improve the trade-off between the spatial resolution and the sensitivity of existing nuclear imaging systems in emission tomography for 511 keV-photons. Although emission tomography suffers from the low amount of emitted photons in the object, partial transparency of collimators and low sensitivity of detectors,(More)
Emission tomography has provided a new insight in brain mechanisms past years. Although reconstructions are nowadays mostly static, trend is going toward dynamic acquisitions and reconstructions. This opens a new range of investigations, for instance for drugs discovery. Indeed new drugs are studied through the dynamic ability of tissues to catch them.(More)
Developed for radionuclide standardization using liquid scintillation, the Triple to Double Coincidence Ratio (TDCR) method is applied using coincidence counting obtained with a specific three-photomultiplier system. For activity determination, a statistical model of light emission is classically used to establish a relation between the detection efficiency(More)
Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) have the potential to enhance the radiation dose locally in conjunction with kV X-rays used for radiation therapy. As for other radiotherapy modalities, the absorbed dose needs to be controlled. To do that, it is an advantage to know the distribution of GNPs. However, no effective imaging tool exists to determine the GNP(More)
We report here on the 2007 discovery, in perfect archaeological context, of part of the engraved and ocre-stained undersurface of the collapsed rockshelter ceiling from Abri Castanet, Dordogne, France. The decorated surface of the 1.5-t roof-collapse block was in direct contact with the exposed archaeological surface onto which it fell. Because there was no(More)
