The First Prototype

Prototype of the avalanche photodiode-based PET scanner developed at Université de Sherbrooke, which was used as the technological basis for the LabPET scanners.  This prototype was in use for biomedical research at the Sherbrooke Molecular Imaging Center from 1995 to 2009.  It will be on show at the exhibition “ Mad about Brains” at the Musée de la civilisation of Quebec City until March 11, 2018 (https://www.mcq.org/en/informations/mcq).”
