An initial investigation of open PET geometries

Abstract

A long patient port of PET scanner tends to put stress on patients, especially patients with claustrophobia. It also prevents doctors and technicians from taking care of patients during scanning. In this paper, we propose an "open PET" geometry, which consists of two axially separated detector rings. Long and continuous field-of-view (FOV) including 360… (More)
