In this work we use PeneloPET to simulate the Biograph scanners B-TP, B-TPTV and mCT. Simulations were adjusted to reproduce some experimental results from the actual scanners and validated by comparing their predictions to further experimental results. Sensitivity, spatial resolution, NEC rate and scatter fraction (SF) were estimated.

    An experimental observation on a large welded plate found that the weld can concentrate and guide the energy of a guided wave traveling along the direction of the weld. An attractive shear weld guided mode was discovered by the authors, which is non-attenuative and almost non-dispersive. It is...
