PETT VI is a circular ring, multislice positron emission tomograph designed for small field studies. Features such as wobble and rotate motions, bimodal resolution, cesium flouride scintillators, fast timing circuits and dual buffer histogram memories allow a flexible data acquisition environment. Efficient modularized software concepts are implemented to facilitate concurrent tasks of data acquisition, processing and display. The ability to effectively manage high count rate situations and collect continuous time frames makes PETT VI ideally suited for dynamic studies.
