Abstract:

Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) has become a powerful new tool in imaging biological processes in small laboratory animals. However, the performance of this modality is limited by the properties of the detectors available at present. This project will investigate a new solid state detector that appears to be very promising due to its high efficiency, high signal-to-noise ratio and the possibility of excellent energy resolution. In Phase I, large crystals of the new material will be grown, detectors will be fabricated, and their properties will be examined for eventual use in small animal SPECT imaging. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee Over and above the use in nuclear medicine, the new detectors should be applicable to particle physics, homeland defense, geological exploration, industrial imaging, and nuclear remediation
