Multigap Resistive Plate Counters (MRPCs) were used to investigate their time resolution to 511 keV gamma rays in view of possible biomedical applications such as Time-of-Flight Positron Emission Tomography (ToF-PET). Using a 22Na source the Time-of-Flight information of annihilation gamma rays has been measured to calculate the MRPC time resolution to 511 keV photons pairs and resulted to be about 145 ps.
