Workshops #3: Forum on Prospective technologies for the future PET imaging
- Christian BOHM (University of Stockholm, Sweden)
- Patrick LE DÛ (IEEE NPSS, France)
- Cinzia Da Via (University of Manchester, UK)
- MASAHARU NOMACHI (OSAKA University, Japan)
This half-day forum will be oriented around the technical evolution of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) starting from the present to extrapolate to the future. It will be discussed the various technological progresses of tools and techniques in the component of this device from picosecond electronics, Time of Flight, new scintillators, use of Compton event detection, software and analysis of the data using IA as well as its use in various application in Cancer diagnostic, real time patient dose monitoring in particle therapy, small animal experimental state of the art small devices...
We propose to invite few eminent worldwide scientific experts of that domain who made great outstanding development of tools and techniques in their respective fields that made a breakthrough in medical applications. After a short introduction of their technical work, we will ask them to develop their vision for the future. At the end, there will be a forum between them to reply to the question of the audience. We want to transform this kind of forum in an open access accessible by the maximum of students and scientific interested by the subject. We want to promote it like a webinar type where participants should register and be able to ask question remotely...
