In order to achieve the best performance of a LYSO PET scanner, the temperature dependence of LYSO crystals was studied in order to understand its impact on the collected light output, energy resolution, transit time and timing resolution. With eight LYSO block detectors, the temperature dependence was measured from room temperature, 22, to 58 /spl deg/C… (More)
