“Modeling a Large Volume Cadmium Zinc Telluride PET System for Multi-Scatter Information”

Riley’s project is combining computer science, physics, biology, and engineering to develop a more sensitive PET (positron emission tomography) system with the hopes of applying it for detecting neurodegenerative diseases and more. Riley will perform experimental studies which include computational skills and high energy physics and will hopefully be translated into small animal studies.
