PET scan

Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine functional imaging technique that is used in clinical oncology and for diagnosis of certain brain diseases, including dementia.


After injecting a solution labeled with positron radioactive isotopes into a patient’s body, the photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) detect annihilation gamma rays emitted when a positron released in the body annihilates with an electron. The computer will then form cross-section images reflecting the distribution of positron radioactive isotopes.


Silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs or MPPCs) or photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) coupled to scintillators are used for detecting these gamma rays.


We have the optimum detectors available for your PET scanner from our extensive selection of SiPMs (MPPCs) and PMTs.
