Some studies for a development of a small animal PET based on LYSO crystals and Geiger mode-APDs
Review articleOpen access
AbstractThe use of Geiger mode avalanche photodiodes (G-APD)/micro-cell APDs (MAPD) opens new simplifications in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) designs. We report on some test studies for a small animal PET based on LYSO crystals and G-APDs/MAPDs for readout. Emphasis is put on time and energy resolution.
