The Jagiellonian Positron Emission Tomograph (J-PET) is a novel device based on organic scintillators being developed at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. J-PET is an axially symmetric and high acceptance scanner that can be used as a multi-purpose detector system. It is well suited to pursue tests of discrete symmetries in decays of positronium in addition to medical imaging. J-PET enables measurement of both momenta and polarization vectors of annihilation photons. The latter is a unique feature of the J-PET detector which allows study of the time reversal symmetry violation operator constructed solely from the annihilation photons momenta before and after scattering within the detector.
