SPRINT II is a stationary detector ring tomograph designed for brain imaging. Eleven two-dimensional sodium iodide camera modules that use maximum-likelihood position logic are arranged in a 50-cm-diameter ring with a scintillator packing fraction of 96%. A 34-cm-diameter rotating lead aperture ring containing either 10 or 12 slits is used for in-plane collimation, while the z-axis collimator is constructed of parallel lead foil rings. The field of view is 22 cm in diameter by 12 cm long… CONTINUE READING
