We are building a dual-panel positron emission tomography (PET) system prototype that enables focused imaging of local regions of interest of the body with 1 mm3 spatial resolution, The detector panels are built from novel 3D position sensitive scintillation (3DPSS) detectors comprising arrays of 1x1x1 mm3 LYSO scintillation crystal elements coupled to position-sensitive avalanche photodiodes (PSAPD). At the present state of system construction, the measured energy resolution over 98,304 crystal elements coupled to 1,536 PSAPDs is 11.34%, and 76.2% (74,938) of the system LYSO crystal elements are found to have greater than 99% event positioning accuracy. Imaging studies performed with a high-resolution phantom demonstrate resolution of the smallest (1.2 mm diameter) features. Besides enabling 1 mm resolution clinical PET studies, we describe other novel ways we are planning to exploit the 3DPSS detector information.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
