Optical-Gamma Camera Imaging in Nuclear Medicine

This presentation describes the development of a novel camera for hybrid optical-gamma imaging, undertaken through a collaboration between Prof John Lees (University of Leicester) and Prof Alan Perkins (University of Nottingham).
The hybrid camera comprises a 0.5mm thick CsI(Tl) columnar scintillator coupled to an electron multiplying CCD. A pinhole collimator and optical camera provide coaligned fused images. The design, operation and clinical prospects for such devices will be described.

Prof Alan Perkins will be speaking in the following theatre:
