Final Report - STRING (Structured scintillators for Medical Imaging)

Project ID: 32636
Funded under: FP6-NMP


Currently, PET machines use single crystalline materials: in high end time-of-flight PET scanners almost 40 000 of them are needed. This contributes significantly to the costs of such scanners. For this reason String was set up to look for cheaper alternatives. Their final report looks into the aims and objectives their successes and setback of the project and outlines future work that needs to be concluded.
