PET imaging relies on the detection of two back-to-back 511 keV gamma photons. A line is constructed connecting the detection points of these two gamma (known as the line of reaction (LOR)). The image is constructed by analysing all these lines. If the time-of-arrival of the two gamma photons is precisely measured, this line is shortened to be just a line segment, with more precise timing...

CaLIPSO group at IRFU investigates the feasibility to use the Cherenkov radiation
to enhance the TOF performance of the PET scanners.
Two projects are under development. CaLIPSO project investigates the possibility to build the brain
and pre-clinical PET device with a high spatial resolution of the order of 1 mm3.
It uses an innovative...

Hadrontherapy can be defined as radiotherapy by means of proton or light ion beams. This alternative technique enables a highly localized dose deposition and better organ-at-risk...
