  • Patent number: 4150292
    Abstract: A nuclear medicine imaging device is disclosed which provides tomographic sectional images of the human body subsequent to the administration of radio pharmaceuticals labelled with positron-emitting radionuclides. Signals representative of the distribution of the radionuclide within the patient are generated and are used in computerized tomography to reconstruct the region under examination. Elongated scintillation detectors are utilized to span a plurality of tomographic sections and positioning circuitry is utilized with the detectors for said tomographic sections. As an alternative embodiment, said detectors are arrayed coplanarly around the subject and generate suitable information for said computerized emission tomographic reconstruction.
