positron emission tomography multimodality magnetic resonance
Project description

This project aims to design and develop the block detectors for a whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) scanning prototype with unique attributes and compatibility for simultaneous magnetic resonance (MR) acquisition. This project will use MR compatible detectors (SiPMs), which have superior abilities than current commercial PET scanners at a reduced size and reduced cost.
