High energy 3-D nuclear medicine imaging using coded apertures with a conventional gamma camera

L. Zhang; R. C. Lanza; B. K. P. Horn; R. E. Zimmerman 1998 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record. 1998 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (Cat. No.98CH36255), 1998

Standard nuclear medicine imaging uses photon collimation and thus suffers from very low sensitivity, especially if high energy (>511 keV) isotopes are to be imaged. Coded aperture techniques use a coded pattern mask instead of a collimator to encode the photon source distribution, thus every photon source contributes to the signal in the whole detector area. It significantly improves the ...


Radiation hardened SOS MOSFET technology for infrared focal plane readouts

F. J. Kub; C. T. Yao; J. R. Waterman IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1990

A silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) MOSFET technology with a body contact technique is shown to provide a reduced kink effect and no edge leakage for a 500 krad(Si) Co-60 dose at 80 K. The approach utilizes a conventional local oxidation of silicon (LOCOS) field implant process with a silicon conducting layer remaining beneath the field oxide. For the design, with the body ...


Silicon photomultiplier-based Compton Telescope for Safety and Security

Laurel Sinclair; Patrick Saull; David Hanna; Henry Seywerd; Audrey MacLeod; Patrick Boyle 2013 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (2013 NSS/MIC), 2013

A Compton gamma imager has been designed for use in consequence management operations and in security investigations. The imager uses solid inorganic scintillator, known for robust performance in field survey conditions, and was constrained in overall size by the requirement that it be operable from a variety of platforms, and person transportable among them. In order to introduce minimal dead ...


CMOS/SOI hardening at 100 Mrad (SiO<sub>2</sub>)

J. L. Leray; E. Dupont-Nivet; J. F. Pere; Y. M. Coic; M. Raffaelli; A. J. Auberton-Herve; M. Bruel; B. Giffard; J. Margail IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1990

Hardened CMOS silicon-on-insulator (SOI) 29101 microprocessor elementary cells and transistors were irradiated at levels between 10 Mrad(SiO2) and 1 Grad(SiO2) (60Co and 10-keV X-rays). SIMOX buried oxide behavior in the range of 100 Mrad(SiO 2) and a channel-stopped MOS/SOI structure avoiding lateral leakage current are presented. These two items indicate the feasibility of a CMOS/SOI technology operating in the hundred ...

S. J. Sankovic; R. D. Ilic; Dj. Lazare; I. Fetahovic; M. Obrenovic; B. Iricanin 2015 IEEE Pulsed Power Conference (PPC), 2015

One of the most useful applications of MOSFET semiconductor components has been introduced to improve the gamma or electron radiation detection system. In many practical cases it is not easy to carry out experimental tests of semiconductor devices in radiation environment, so it is more convenient to perform the assessment of ionizing radiation interaction with semiconductor devices by using numerical ...

  • Detection and Estimation of Radiological Sources

    This chapter considers several inferential problems regarding radiological sources, including estimation of point and distributed sources using a collection of static observers and source search and estimation using mobile observers. It presents the detection and localization of radiological materials that emit gamma rays, the highly penetrating electromagnetic radiations that can travel large distances through air. The chapter devotes to batch estimation of point radiological sources using measurements from a fixed network of sensors. The Bayesian approach to inference assumes that the unknown parameter of interest is a random variable. In this framework, inferential procedures are based on the posterior distribution, that is, the distribution of the parameter conditional on the observations. Bayesian estimation was favored because of the possibility of developing accurate and computationally efficient approximations of optimal Bayesian estimators for large dimensional parameters. The Renyi divergence is only one of a number of candidates for measuring the difference between two distributions.

  • Fundamentals of Electrical Discharges

    Natural phenomena, such as gamma rays produced by radioactive decay processes in the soil and cosmic radiation originating from solar flares and other galactic objects, can ionize the air molecules. This chapter first discusses ionization and deionization processes in gases. This is followed by a discussion on ionization and attachment coefficients. Two typical breakdown mechanisms occur in gases, each of them operating under specifically favorable conditions: Townsend's mechanism and the streamer mechanism. Corona discharges in air can burn on the overstressed zones of hot electrodes. This kind of discharge occupies a short layer, attached to the energized conductor. When a conductor is in corona, then the electric field on the surface is somehow influenced by the surrounding ion space charge. Kaptzov's hypothesis (KH) relates to the assumption that the space charge emitted into the interelectrode gap is in amounts that hold the surface field at the onset level.
