A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11903749B2) discloses a nuclear medicine tomography system designed to maintain the temperature of the detector camera below a specified threshold temperature. The system includes a detector carrier housing with a heat pump that cools the air within the inner space to a temperature lower than the room temperature where the system is located. Each detector unit comprises a detector camera, cooling channel, exhaust channel, and sensors to monitor temperature. The processor sends control signals to the heat pump and actuators to regulate the temperature of the detector camera and maintain it below the threshold temperature.

Furthermore, the system includes features such as extendable arms for housing the detector camera, room temperature regulators for patient comfort, actuators for generating airflow, motors for detector camera movement, and thermal insulation to reduce heat transfer. The method described in the patent involves setting a desired room temperature for patient comfort above 23°C and a lower temperature for the detector camera to ensure low noise operation. By sending control signals to the heat pump, the system can effectively manage and maintain the temperatures required for optimal performance of the nuclear medicine tomography system.
