2019.10.01 - Marek Pawłowski 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.
