Experimental Assessment of the Gain Achieved by the Utilization of Time-of-Flight Information in a Positron Emission Tomograph (Super PETT I)

Abstract

The gain achieved in image quality by utilizing, in the image forming process, the time-of-flight information (TOF) of positron annihilation photons between their inception and detection was measured experimentally by means of a positron emission tomograph (PET)-Super PETT I. The measurements were carried out by imaging a 35 cm cylindrical uniform phantom… (More)
