J-PET has been pre­sen­ted in Cra­cow

Visualisation of the nymerical model of the J-PET detector (NCBJ)
Today J-PET, a posi­tron emis­sion tomo­gra­phy scan­ner, desi­gned and con­struc­ted in the Marian Smo­lu­chow­ski Insti­tute of Phy­sics on the Jagiel­lo­nian Uni­ver­sity, has been pre­sen­ted in Cra­cow. Employ­ees of Natio­nal Cen­tre for Nuc­lear Rese­arch were among the team resposible for this project. The device allows for uti­li­zing com­ple­tely new methods of body ima­ging based on multi-pho­ton decays. So far, those types of decay have never been uti­li­zed for this pur­pose. ----
