Abstract

In this contribution we present a new concept of the large acceptance
detector systems based on organic scintillators which
may allow for simultaneous diagnostic of large fraction of the
human body. Novelty of the concept lies in employing large
blocks of polymer scintillators instead of crystals as detectors
of annihilation quanta, and in using predominantly the timing
of signals instead of their amplitudes.
