Scanner for positron emission computed tomography

Image Number 16 for United States Patent #4309611.

A scanner for positron emission computed tomography comprising a rotary member rotatable within the plane of a slice about an axis lying perpendicular to this plane and having means for accommodating a subject for examination, a drive means for rotating this rotary member within the plane of slice, and a plurality of radiation detectors provided on the rotary member so as to substantially face each other relative to the subject to be examined, in which the radiation detectors are disposed so that at least some of them are either positioned with irregular spacing relative to each other, or positioned at irregular distances from the axis of rotation.
