Positron Emission Tomography (PET) has been a very useful laboratory tool for the noninvasive study of dynamic physiological processes within the human body. Its clinical worth in cardiology, neurology, and oncology has been verified for well over a decade. Only with the most recent introduction of high performance analog and VLSI digital components yielding higher scanner resolutions at reduced costs, has clinical PET truly become a reality. The High Performance Detector Electronics System presented here represents indubitably the most advanced processing system available in the clinical PET market.
