Modular Medical Facilities, Stationary, Positron Emission Tomography
Definition : Stationary modular medical facilities that are typically divided into a positron emission tomography (PET) scanning area and a control room, including the operator console, and that could also include an auxiliary equipment (e.g., electric generator, air conditioning) room. These facilities consist of scintillation detectors arranged in stationary rings around the patient, photomultiplier tubes, coincidence circuits, a patient table, and a computer subsystem, including dedicated software, display monitors, and a data- storage unit.
