Abstract:

Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a powerful, noninvasive medical imaging modality that mathematically reconstructs the three dimensional distribution of a radionuclide throughout the body of a human patient or research animal. At present, the performance of available SPECT systems is limited by current detector technology. This project will investigate new gamma-ray detectors that have the potential to provide excellent energy resolution, an important requirement in SPECT. Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of producing such detectors with high energy resolution. Optimization of the detector, including scale-up and implementation, is planned for Phase II effort. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The proposed detector technology should be very promising for clinical SPECT applications for medical imaging. It also should be applicable to many other gamma-ray imaging systems for astronomy, nondestructive studies, and nuclear non-proliferation.
