My wife is HOT!!

….Literally hot- as in radioactive!  For laughs, Katie let me measure her radioactivity immediately following her PET scan.

I was really surprised how easily we could get a reading.  I am currently looking into the feasibility of making my own PET scanner using PIN photodiodes, instead of LYSO crystal scintillators and PMTs.  Of course, it will be a while before I make my own cyclotron (to generate isotope tracer), but I could always test it out after one of her scans.  So many projects, so little time!
