Cerium doped Lutetium Yttrium Silicate scintillation crystal (LYSO(Ce) scintillator) is an ideal generation scintillator crystal. LYSO scintillator has the advantages of high light output and density, quick decay time, excellent energy resolution. These properties make LYSO an ideal candidate for a range of ray detection applications in nuclear physics and nuclear medicine, which require higher, improved timing resolution and superior energy revolution. It is ideal for applications that require high throughput, good timing and energy resolution, such as time-of-flight Positron Emission Tomography (PET). PET applications have traditionally used arrays of BGO. But LYSO crystal completely beat BGO on density, energy resolution and timing.
Hangzhou Shalom EO offers the LYSO(Ce) arrays or crystal matrix, which is the most popular array used in Positron Emission Tomography(PET) facilities, include PET for whole body diagnosis, small animal diagnosis and specific organ like brain, Breast, thyroid diagnosis. LYSO(Ce) array is an essential and critical component in PET, Shalom EO would offer the LYSO(Ce) arrays with high dimensional precision, good uniformity of pixel light output, Shalom EO also offers the multi-layer scintillator arrays of LYSO(Ce) for high resolution PET medical systems.
