Abstract

A new dedicated high resolution breast imaging scanner based on compact detector modules with very high intrinsic spatial resolution is designed. The compactness is the peculiarity of this detector module to allow the lodging in the breast interspace, to work close to the chest wall and to minimize the tumor to collimator front distance. The initial characterization results of detector modules allow to foresee that the single photon compact ring tomograph for high resolution breast imaging can be a promising technique as well as has the exciting potential to make a real contribution to the field of breast imaging.
