Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT) is a technique which allows the three-dimensional, internal dynamics of opaque systems to be imaged with high temporal and spatial resolution. This book provides both an accessible introduction to, and a comprehensive reference guide for the PEPT technique. The work provides detailed information regarding the technique, its underpinning principles and underlying physics, the detectors, tracers and algorithms which allow it to operate, and the extensive, discipline-spanning work which has been performed using it. The text is accompanied by detailed interactive examples and working pre- and post-processing codes which the reader can use not only to gain still deeper insight into how PEPT works, but to directly perform PEPT analysis using real data provided. It is aimed at masters students, PhD students and researchers for whom PEPT may be a valuable research tool.
