Abstract

We developed a prototype of TIBr semiconductor detector array for high resolution PET scanner with less than Imm FWHM. We obtained an energy resolution of ∼20% FWHM for 511 keV and a coincidence time resolution of ∼50nsec FWHM at a detector bias 100V. This result expects the capability of application of T1Br detector array to a high resolution PET scanner. The TIBr detector arrays with the present time resolution performance can be applied to a small PET scanner for the PET study using small animals such as rats and mice.
