Description

A time-of-flight positron emission tomography (TOF PET) prototype apparatus, based on the principles of Cherenkov photon detection, was tested in experiments with a simple phantom. The time resolution obtained with such a system was 116 ps FWHM, with the single detector efficiency of 4.3%. Such excellent time resolution enabled a very fast image reconstruction algorithm to achieve results comparable to that of much more computing-intensive algorithms.
