A Hand-Held, Intra-Operative Positron Imaging Probe for Surgical Applications

Abstract

We have developed a prototype intra-operative &#x03B2;<sup>+</sup> imaging probe to help tumor removal and malignant tissue resection. The probe can be used during surgery to provide clear delineation of malignant tissues. Our probe consists of a hybrid scintillator coupled to a silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) array with associated front-end electronics… (More)
