Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To investigate the quality of gamma camera images obtained with moving collimators, a group of collimators was constructed which could be rotated or sinusoidally oscillated in 2 dimensions. The data indicate a broadening effect on images in the direction of collimator motion. Moving the collimator during imaging will reduce septal aberrations but will not increase resolution.
