We are investigating the influences of heavy ion irradiation on the detectors for in-beam OpenPET by using the Heavy Ion Medical Accelerator in Chiba (HIMAC) at the National institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS). "OpenPET" which consists of two detector rings separated axially is suitable for in-beam PET in heavy ion therapy due to the open space… CONTINUE READING
