Abstract

A plastic scintillator detection system was developed for the measurement of arterial blood H//2 **1 **5 O concentrations in positron emission tomoraphic (PET) local cerebral blood flow studies. The system uses a peristaltic pump to continually pull arterial blood from a radial artery through the plastic scintillator for the detection of the oxygen-15 positrons. To correct for the smearing of the arterial blood curve shape due to laminar flow in the pump tubing, a deconvolution technique has been developed.
