Initial experience is reported with the Scanditronix PC 2048-15B, a 15-slice positron emission tomography (PET) system using multicrystal/multiphoto-multiplier modules to obtain high spatial resolution. Random and scattered events are reduced using an orbiting (68)Ge rod source for transmission scans by only accepting coincidence lines which intersect the… CONTINUE READING
