The availability of new scintillation crystals such as LSO and LYSO [85–88] that combine fast timing decay with high light output and high stopping power and improvements in performance and reliability of fast PMTs in combination with improvements in high-speed electronics made it practical to develop the new generation of TOF PET scanners. In addition, progress in image reconstruction, especially in iterative reconstruction methods, further improved PET images by including TOF and other physical effects in the system model [89–94].
