Title (EN) SCINTILLATION ARRAY METHOD AND APPARATUS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE RÉSEAU DE SCINTILLATION
Abstract:
(EN) In one aspect a scintillation array includes a transparent material between portions of adjacent scintillation pixels. The transparent material can allow light to pass from one scintillation pixel to an adjacent scintillation pixel. The resulting image provides information regarding the depth at which a scintillation event occurs. Another aspect regards a scintillation array that includes reflector strips separating portions of adjacent scintillation pixels. Other spaces between portions of scintillation pixels need not include reflector strips and may be filled with other reflective material.
(FR) La présente invention porte, selon un aspect, sur un réseau de scintillation qui comprend un matériau transparent entre des parties ayant des pixels de scintillation adjacents. Le matériau transparent peut permettre le passage de la lumière d'un pixel de scintillation à un pixel de scintillation adjacent. L'image résultante donne des informations sur la profondeur à laquelle un événement de scintillation se produit. Un autre aspect concerne un réseau de scintillation qui comprend des bandes réflectrices séparant des parties des pixels de scintillation adjacents. Les autres espaces entre les parties des pixels de scintillation ne doivent pas comprendre des bandes réflectrices et peuvent être remplies avec un autre matériau réfléchissant.
