Adaptive methods for medical imaging with gamma cameras

// Instruments and methods for biomedical applications

Instrumentos e Métodos para Aplicações Biomédicas

The group was created in 2013 to apply the know-how accumulated at LIP in the course of previous work on position-sensitive scintillation detectors (PSSD) to the areas of medical imaging and imaging techniques used in drug discovery.

In the past years we confirmed, both with Monte Carlo simulation and experimentally, the applicability of our auto-calibration and position reconstruction techniques to both clinical gamma cameras of classical design and compact, high-resolution cameras with silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) readout. We also created an integrated software tool that incorporates the whole development workflow for PSSD: interactive design and simulation via a computer model, as well as experimental data processing and event reconstruction.

Our group has close collaborations with the ICNAS and AIBILI medical research centres in Coimbra, with the Coimbra University Hospital Centre (CHUC), and  with the Radiation Detectors and Applications Group at Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
