Silicon Photomultipliers are used in many new generation PET block detectors. High granularity pixel SiPMs allow a high precision measurement of the photon interaction coordinates along the crystal surface. In order to further improve the resolution it is necessary to measure the photon Depth of Interaction (DOl), so as to reduce the parallax error in the Line of Response reconstruction. An innovative technique for DOl determination is proposed and tested. Measurements are made with a 2 cm × 2 cm × 1 cm LYSO slab with readout on the front and back large sides by means of two 4 × 4 square SiPM pixel matrices of 5 mm pitch. The data acquisition is based on the new BASIC32 chip read out with an FPGA-based system.
