Monday physics colloquium

On Monday, November 14Andrej Studen will give a lecture entitled PET imaging with silicon sensors. The lecture will be in the context of promotion to Assistant Professor. You are cordially invited at 16:15 to Faculty of Mathematics and PhysicsJadranska 19, lecture room F1.

ABSTRACT: Silicon seems an unlikely candidate for imaging in positron emission tomography. However, the ability to provide spatially accurate interaction positions of energetic photons can be exploited to yield significantly improved images. In the presentation, physics of PET imaging will be introduced, focusing on interplay of sensor spatial resolution and final image quality, concluded by potential application of silicon based PET imaging probes.
