Abstract:

65689 For an increasing number of human diseases, smaller animals such as mice and rats can serve as effective models. Accordingly, high-resolution radionuclide imaging, such as positron emission tomography (PET), of small animals can contribute unique information. However, clinical PET scanners used for human imaging are bulky and expensive, and do not have adequate spatial resolution for small animal studies. Dedicated, low cost instruments are required for these small animal studies, with higher spatial resolution than currently achieved with clinical PET scanners. This project will produce a high resolution, low-cost detector module for small animal PET imaging. The construction and extensive evaluation of a PET module is planned for Phase I. Commercial Applications And Other Benefits as described by awardee: The detector technology should be very promising for PET and other medical imaging modalities such as SPECT and, possibly, CT. It will also be applicable in nuclear and high energy physics, astronomy, diffraction, non-destructive studies, safeguards, and bore hole logging.
