The PET technique is widely used in human clinical studies and recent developments of image resolution has made it suitable for small animal research. The second generation of our PET scanner consists of 12 detector modules and has a field of view large enough to image mice and rats. Parameters of the incoming data are extracted by Digital Signal Processing in the detector modules and a System-on-Module is used to transmit the data through an Ethernet network for storage and reconstruction. The experimental scanner setup described in this paper was constructed in order to investigate the applicability of the developed detector modules in a full ring small animal PET camera. The preliminary results of the system are also presented.
