Real Time Artificial Neural Network FPGA Implementation for Triple Coincidences Recovery in PET

In small-animal Positron Emission Tomography (PET), spatial resolution improvements rely on detector minimization in size and often come at the expense of lowering the detector photoelectric fraction. As a result, Inter-Crystal Scatter (ICS) occurrences are increased and affect the overall PET detection efficiency. To reclaim some lost efficiency, previous… CONTINUE READING
