Positron emission mammography (PEM) is a functional imaging technique for breast cancer detection. The development of dedicated systems with high sensitivity and spatial resolution, are a valuable resource for early breast cancer diagnosis and onset of an efficient therapy. In this paper, we report on the performance indicators of the Clear-PEM imaging system. In particular, we evaluate, the detection sensitivity, system count rates and breast lesion detection by means of Monte Carlo simulation.
