  • Publication number: 20220387095
    Abstract: Damaged, diseased, abnormal, obstructive, cancerous or undesired neural tissue treated by delivering specialized pulsed electric field (PEF) energy to target tissue areas. In some instances, the target tissue includes a tumor, a benign tumor, a malignant tumor, a cyst, or an area of diseased tissue. Most brain and spinal cord tumors develop from glial cells. These tumors are sometimes referred to as a group called gliomas. They arise from the supporting cells of the brain, called the glia. These cells are subdivided into astrocytes, ependymal cells and oligodendroglial cells (or oligos). One difficulty in the treatment of gliomas is that they are behind the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and blood-tumor barrier (BTB) which leads to poor delivery of anti-cancer drugs or immune agents to the tumor-infiltrated brain.

  • Patent number: 11445995
    Abstract: A Positron Emission Tomography (PET) device, detector for a PET device and method of performing PET. The detector includes a scintillator and a photodetector. The scintillator includes a crystal defining a receiving axis and having a receiving face for receiving a gamma ray. A dopant concentration of the crystal varies along the receiving axis with a distance from the receiving face. The photodetector is configured to generate an impulse response in response to an interaction between the gamma ray and the crystal. A decay profile of the impulse response is related to a local dopant concentration of the crystal at the location of the interaction and the distance of the interaction from the receiving face.
