The aim of this study is to develop a MR compatible PET that is insertable to MRI and allows simultaneous PET and MR imaging of human brain. The brain PET having 72 detector modules arranged in a ring of 330 mm diameter was designed. Each PET module composed of 4 × 4 matrix of 3 mm × 3 mm × 20 mm LYSO crystals coupled to a tileable 4 × 4 array Geigermode avalanche photodiode (GAPD) and designed to locate between RF and gradient coils. Signals of the each module were transferred to preamplifiers… CONTINUE READING
