Abstract

Cerenkov luminescence imaging is a molecular imaging technique recently introduced as a novel tool to image in vivo the bio-distribution of β plus and β minus emitters for both human and animal models. The use of a Cerenkov radiator can be useful in order to enhance the detected signal. The aim of this work is to investigate with Monte Carlo simulations the efficiency of different materials used as radiator.
