Transverse axial positron annihilation coincidence detection tomography with a stationary circular ring posi tron camera system is described. A prototype constructed with 64 NaI(T1) crystal system has the capability of recording 736 - 1312 simultaneous coincidence pairs and is able to perform certain dynamic function studies.
