3D position sensitive
Compton camera succeeds
in high-precision imaging of
4.4 MeV gamma rays

Researchers at Waseda University and the National Institutes for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology (QST) created a novel 3D position sensitive Compton camera (3D-PSCC), which enables high-precision gamma-ray imaging of the 1-10 MeV range. This camera could be applied to advance cancer treatment and probe nucleosynthesis in the universe in the future.

This study, led by Professor Jun Kataoka, was published online in Scientific Reports on May 25, 2018.
