A high performance positron emission tomograph, HEADTOME III, with 480 bismuth germanate oxide detectors (13.4 X 25.0 X 40.0 mm), arranged in three rings of 750 mm diameter, with independent shadow masks and septa, is described. Image plane resolution at the center of the field of view (FOV) is 7.9 and 6.5 mm full width at half maximum (FWHM) in low resolution (LR) and high resolution (HR) mode, respectively. Axial resolution is 13.1, 11.3, and 9.1 mm FWHM at the center of FOV for direct planes… CONTINUE READING
