Project Description: 

To overcome limitations in spatial resolution of gamma cameras, the Crystal Clear Collaboration at CERN has developed and patented a technology for a gamma camera based on a double layer LSO/LuYAP crystal detector (PHOSWICHconfiguration). In combination with common position sensitive read out devices such as photomultipliers and APDs, this setup offers a depth-of-interaction (DOI) reconstruction of the impact point of the incident photon by signal shape analysis.


Some projects using this technology: 
  • Crystal Clear Collaboration
    The CERN group of the Crystal Clear Collaboration is developing new fast detector prototypes for use in both high-energy physics experiments and medical imaging.
