Micro PET-CT Camera
After success operation of the prototype MDAPET Camera, we developed a low-cost, high-sensitivity and high-resolution dedicated animal PET camera (RRPET). In 2006, we successfully completed the construction of the RRPET camera and it was then commercialized as the world’s first animal PET-CT (XPET) scanner. This camera is based on the PQS concept that was first used in construction of MDAPET Camera
- Photomultiplier-Quadrant-Sharing detector design
and the SSB technique that was first introduced in construction of HOTPET Human Camera for building the detector blocks more efficiently:
- Slab-sandwich-slice (SSS) production technique
The RRPET camera consists of 180 BGO (Bismuth Germanate) blocks arranged in 48 rings.
