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 the available detector technology. This project will investigate new gamma-ray detectors that have the potential to provide excellent energy resolution. Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of producing such new detectors with high energy resolution. Optimization of the detector, including scale-up and implementation, is planned for Phase II. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee The proposed detector technology should be very promising for clinical SPECT applications. It also should be applicable to many other gamma-ray imaging systems for astronomy, non-destructive studies, and nuclear non-proliferation
