Title: Modeling an Interwoven Collimator for A 3D Endocavity Gamma Camera

Positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission-computed tomography (SPECT) are important nuclear-medical imaging tools in diagnosing cancers and creating effective treatment plans. Here, commercially imaging systems are operated externally and can create 3D images of the whole body or of specific organs by rotating the gamma-ray detectors, and then employing software to reconstruct the 3D images from the multiple 2D projections at different angles of view.
