Design of a real-time FPGA-based DAQ architecture for the LabPET II, an APD-based scanner dedicated to small animal PET imaging

To achieve submillimetric spatial resolution, a new detection block has been designed for the LabPET II, a small animal PET scanner being developed at Université de Sherbrooke. Each detection block consists of 2 arrays of 4×8 avalanche photodiodes (APD) individually coupled to an 8×8 scintillator array, to form 64 independent and parallel DAQ channels… CONTINUE READING
