….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!
