Abstract

The success of PET systems for dedicated applications such as small animal and breast cancer imaging is largely due to the continuous development of high-resolution, high sensitivity instrumentation for gamma ray detection. This paper reports on some recent advances in the technology together with a brief review of the state-of-the-art of PET systems in these fields. A brief overview of the near-future perspectives is also presented. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
