Abstract
The goal of this study is to optimize the gas composition medium and strip geometry of a small-field of view gas- microstrip detector for medical imaging applications, such as x-ray digital imaging, computed tomography, quantitative autoradiography, including other nuclear medicine applications. The gas multiplication factor as well as the electrical parameters of the microstrip substrate have been studied. The results of this study indicate that an adequate gas multiplication process can be achieved with a Xe filled gas detector operating up to 10 atm.
