Therefore, corrections must be made for this attenuation of photons in the body tissue.

6) where mi and Di are the linear attenuation coefficient and thickness of ith organ or tissue, and n is the number of organs or tissues the photon travels through. Therefore, corrections must be made for this attenuation of photons in the body tissue.

These detectors can be cut into smaller crystals resulting in improved spatial resolution of the system. 6 ns and is primarily used in time-of-flight scanners that are rarely used clinically nowadays, because of various technical difficulties. Cerium-doped yittrium oxyorthosilicate (YSO) is a new type of detector, but no commercial manufacturer has yet used it in PET technology. Some promising detectors such as cerium-doped lutetium iodide and cerium-doped lanthanum bromide are in the development stage.
