Abstract

Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT) software at the University of Tennessee (MultiPEPT) has demonstrated promising performance in multiple measurement domains. In order to contribute to its further development, a full codebase audit and three focused performance assessments were undertaken. Several improvements were made to the codebase as a result of the audit. The assessments demonstrated a linear axial detector- MultiPEPT response, the effect of mesh size variation, and the effect of temporal overlap variation. A number of best practices are compiled for effective use of MultiPEPT.
