Abstract
Expressions for the mean and variance of the images produced by Fourier Multiaperture Emission Tomography are derived. Only quantum noise (counting statistics) is considered. The signal-to-noise ratio achieved by the system for a thin disc-shaped object is computed from these expresions. An example is used to demonstrate some significant features of this single photon emission tomogrphic imaging system.
