Development of an improved detector module for miniPET-II
2007 (English)In: 2006 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record, IEEE , 2007, 3037-3040 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present a new detector module developed for miniPET-II, the second generation of the miniPET small animal PET scanners. The improved module features new hardware components for better performance: LySO crystal material, increased number of crystal segments, Hamamatsu H9500 PSPMT, Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGA and Gigabit Ethernet. However, the principle of operation is the same: no hardware coincidence detection is implemented, data is acquired in list mode and transfered over an Ethernet network. The resulting new module is more suitable for full ring configurations.
