Title
(EN) CLOSE-RANGE POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY MODULES AND SYSTEM
(FR) MODULES ET SYSTEME DE TOMOGRAPHIE PAR ÉMISSION DE POSITRONS À COURTE PORTÉE
Abstract
(EN)
This invention provides a close-range positron emission tomography (PET) system, where the detector modules are able to be moved or placed very close to the patient compared to conventional PET systems. As a result, the sensitivity and resolution of the PET system is greatly increased.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système de tomographie par émission de positrons (TEP) à courte portée, où les modules détecteurs sont aptes à être déplacés ou placés très près du patient comparativement à des systèmes TEP Classiques. Par conséquent, la sensibilité et la résolution du système TEP sont considérablement accrues.
