PET imaging with silicon sensors

Dr. Andrej Studen
Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana


Silicon seems an unlikely candidate for imaging in positron emission tomography. However, the ability to provide spatially accurate interaction positions of energetic photons can be exploited to yield significantly improved images. In the presentation, physics of PET imaging will be introduced, focusing on interplay of sensor spatial resolution and final image quality, concluded by potential application of silicon based PET imaging probes.
