Abstract
The Crystal Clear Collaboration has designed and built a family of high resolution small animal PET scanners. These were designed to be used in research laboratories and provide maximum modularity and flexibility. The source code of the data acquisition and reconstruction software is freely available to the users. The design is based on the use of the Hamamatsu R7600-M64 multi-anode photomultiplier tube and an LSO/LuYAP phoswich matrix with one-to-one coupling between the crystals and the photo-detector. A complete system has 80 PMT tubes in four rings with a minimum inner diameter of 137 mm and an axial field of view of 110 mm. The detectors are rotating over 360 degrees so that partially filled ring geometries can be used. This greatly simplifies the combination of PET with other imaging modalities. Single gamma interactions are recorded in list mode format and coincidences are found by software.
