Abstract
We have developed a dedicated scanner for Positron Emission Mammography, equipped with a new detection architecture that enhances its flexibility and reduces dead time. The scanner is going to use Luthetium based scintillators, which offer good detection efficiency, and a novel modular acquisition system, capable of sustaining the high scintillation rate and being less sensitive to background radiation. The final goal is the construction of an instrument able to provide an early diagnosis and to improve the effectiveness of follow-up studies for smaller tumours with respect to those studied with present clinical equipment (e.g. PET, SPECT o scintigraphy) so as to be able to visualize and characterize breast lesions with diameters < 5 mm.
