Abstract

Coincidence detection and the high event rates make data acquisition (DAQ) a challenge for Positron Emission Tomograpy (PET). The data path structures inside a DAQ system in PET have been changing with technological advancements in both communication devices and semiconductor based photo-detectors. Time-of-flight (TOF) detection capability or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compatibility place new requirements on the detection signal chain.
