Performance of the 24-module prototype of the J-PET detector

Warsaw Medical Physics Meeting 2015

A prototype of Positron Emission Tomography scanner is being developed by the J-PET collaboration at the Jagiellonian University [1,2,3,4]. The J-PET detector is built out of plastic scintillators characterized by good timing properties. The reconstruction of the hit-position of gamma quanta is based predominantly on the measurement of the time of registered signals. In order to reconstruct proper hit-position of the gamma quanta the time synchronization of many detector modules is needed. Method of time synchronization of the J-PET prototype will be presented on the example of the 24-module prototype. [1] P. Moskal, T. Bednarski, et al., Radiotheraphy and Oncology 110 (2014) S69.
