Pro-NM PETscatter


The PET scatter phantom is an acceptance testing tool used to determine the imaging systems relative sensitivity to scatter radiation. It can be used to measure the effects of dead-time and the effects of random events generated at different levels of activity of the line source. 

The test phantom is a right circular cylinder composed of polyethylene. For ease of handling, it consists of 3 segments that are assembled together during testing. A hole is drilled parallel to the central axis of the cylinder, at a radial distance of 45mm.
