Performance Characterization of a Novel Thin Position-Sensitive Avalanche Photodiode for 1 mm Resolution Positron Emission Tomography

Abstract

We are developing dedicated breast and small animal positron emission tomography (PET) systems using scintillation detectors comprising 1times1times3 mm<sup>3</sup> LSO crystals coupled to novel, extremely thin position-sensitive avalanche photodiodes (PSAPD). The detectors are placed in a novel configuration such that PSAPDs read the relatively large side… (More)
