Instrumentation for emission computed tomography continues to evolve, taking advantage of developments in detector technology, data processing and correction methods, and reconstruction algorithms. This article reviews the basic principles and latest developments in emission computed tomography instrumentation, for both positron emission tomography and single-photon emission computed tomography applications.
