Title (EN) SPECT DETECTOR ELIMINATING THE DEPTH-OF-INTERACTION PROBLEM
(FR) DETECTEUR DE TOMOGRAPHIE GAMMA ELIMINANT LE PROBLEME DE LA PROFONDEUR D'INTERACTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)At least one radiation detection head (16) is disposed adjacent a field of view (20) to detect radiation from the field of view (20). The radiation detection head (16) includes a collimator (60), including an opening (62), through which radiation rays emanating from the field of view (20) pass, and a detection system (44) forming an arcuate surface (68) focused on the collimator opening (62) for detecting radiation so that radiation rays received through the collimator opening (62) strike the arcuate surface substantially perpendicular to an incremental area of the arcuate surface (68) at which the radiation strikes.
(FR)L'invention concerne un détecteur où au moins une tête (16) de détection de radiations est disposée au voisinage d'un champ (20) de vision pour détecter des radiations provenant du champ (20) de vision. La tête (16) de détection de radiations comprend un collimateur (60), comprenant une ouverture (62) à travers laquelle passent les rayons des radiations émanant du champ (20) de vision, et un système (44) de détection formant une surface (68) arquée dont le foyer est situé sur l'ouverture (62) du collimateur servant à détecter les radiations de telle sorte que les rayons des radiations reçus à travers l'ouverture (62) du collimateur frappent la surface arquée sensiblement perpendiculairement à une aire incrémentale de la surface (68) arquée.
