AAPM showcases the ‘best in physics’

The “Best-in-Physics” session at the AAPM Annual Meeting showcase the studies that score highest in the abstract review process and are judged to reflect the highest level of scientific quality and innovation. The ever-popular electronic poster session includes presentations in therapy, imaging and joint imaging-therapy categories. Here’s our selection from this year’s chosen papers.

Selenium ramps TOF-PET performance

In the imaging category, Andrew LaBella from SUNY Stony Brook University described NEW-HARP, an amorphous selenium photodetector for time-of-flight (TOF) PET. The aim of NEW-HARP (nano-electrode multi-well high-gain avalanche rushing photoconductor) is to achieve a sufficient time resolution to perform TOF-PET in simultaneous PET/MRI.
