Stony Brook Scientists Solve Fundamental Puzzle in Medical Imaging

Scientists from Stony Brook University used a novel technique at NSLS-II to characterize the physics of how light moves within scintillators—a component of x-ray detectors—for the very first time. Their findings could aid the development of more efficient x-ray detectors for improved medical diagnoses.  More...
