Textbook Problem

(a) Two annihilation γ rays in a PET scan originate at the same point and travel to detectors on either side of the patient. If the point of origin is 9.00 cm closer to one of the detectors, what is the difference in arrival times of the photons? (This could be used to give position information, but the time difference is small enough to make it difficult.)

(b) How accurately would you need to be able to measure arrival time differences to get a position resolution of 1.00 mm?

To determine

(a)

The difference in arrival times of the protons.

Explanation

Given info:

The distance from point of origin is

  x=9.00cm

Velocity of proton

  c=3×108m/s

Formula used:

The relation between velocity and distance

  x=ct

  t=xc

Calculation:

Substituting the values

  t=9

To determine

(b)

The difference in arrival times of the protons.
