Paper Abstract

Electronic collimator positron emission tomography (ECPET) is outlined for different classes of coincidence events. It is shown that for 4 fold coincidences the system is essentially equivalent to Llacer-Cho PET. It reduces for two fold coincidences to standard PET. For three fold coincidences the system reduces two different modes of PET operation, each more sensitive in terms of counting efficiency but less precise than Llacer, Cho and less sensitive but more precise than standard PET.
