Abstract–A phantom has been developed for PET/US breast imaging. The phantom reproduces the acoustic and elastic characteristics of human breast tissue, and the different tissues in the phantom can be labeled with 18 F FDG. The phantom was imaged with whole body PET/CT and also with Shear WaveElastography with Supersonic Imagine Aixplorer system. We also… (More)
This article describes the design of a sensor interface circuit for the amplification of voltages and currents. The created PCB was tested at high temperatures and under gamma irradiation. Two different operational amplifiers were compared.
The CRYSTAL CLEAR collaboration, in short CCC, is a consortium of 12 academic institutions, mainly from Europe, joining efforts in the area of developing instrumentation for nuclear medicine and medical imaging. In the framework of the CCC a high performance small animal PET system, called ClearPET, was developed by using new technologies in electronics and… (More)
