Abstract

Abstract This study is based on test results of 30 LSO samples produced by the POLUS Research Institute in Moscow, Russia, for the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. Samples were produced by the Czochralsky and the modified Musatov methods. Pulse-height spectra from 22 Na positron annihilations were analyzed and conclusions are drawn. After some minor corrections to the modified Musatov technology, samples could be recommended for use in PET systems.
