Low light sensing company SensL has supplied its silicon photomultiplier technology to help construct two PET/MRI brain imaging systems.
The imaging systems will be housed in two institutions: Samsung Medical Centre, Sungkyunkwan University, in Seoul, Korea and the Department of Radiology/Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford University in California, USA.
Both Samsung Medical Centre and Stanford University will integrate SensL's SPMArray (Position Sensitive/Multi-Anode Silicon Photomultiplier Array) into their PET/MRI systems. The SPMArray is a solid-state, large array detector based on silicon photomultiplier technology.
The SPMArray will be of particular interest to developers of detector systems for applications such as PET, gamma camera, and radiation detection for medical and security purposes requiring very sensitive, low-light detector arrays.
