Abstract [en]

In PET/MR systems having the PET component within the uniform magnetic field interior to the MR, positron beams can be injected into the PET field of view (FOV) from unshielded emission sources external to it, as a consequence of the action of the Lorentz force on the transverse components of the positron's velocity. Such beams may be as small as a few millimeters in diameter, but extend 50 cm or more axially without appreciable divergence. Larger beams form 'phantoms' of annihilations in air that can be easily imaged, and that are essentially free of gamma-ray attenuation and scatter effects, providing a unique tool for characterizing PET systems and reconstruction algorithms. Thin targets intersecting these beams can produce intense annihilation sources having the thickness of a sheet of paper, which are very useful for high resolution measurements, and difficult to achieve with conventional sources. Targeted beams can provide other point, line and surface sources for various applications, all without the need to have radioactivity within the FOV. In this paper we discuss the physical characteristics of positron beams in air and present examples of their applications.
