Optical-Gamma Camera Imaging in Nuclear Medicine

This presentation describes the development of a novel camera for hybrid optical-gamma imaging, undertaken through a collaboration between Prof John Lees (University of Leicester) and Prof Alan Perkins (University of Nottingham).
The hybrid camera comprises a 0.5mm thick CsI(Tl) columnar scintillator coupled to an electron multiplying CCD. A pinhole collimator and optical camera provide coaligned fused images. The design, operation and clinical prospects for such devices will be described.
