counter

 [kown´ter]
an instrument or apparatus by which numerical value is computed; in radiology, a device for enumerating ionizing events.
Coulter counter an automated instrument for performing blood counts, based on the principle that cells are poor electrical conductors compared with saline solution.
Geiger counter (Geiger-Müller counter) a radiation counter using a gas-filled tube that indicates the presence of ionizing particles. It is very sensitive to β particles but relatively insensitive to γ and x-rays.
scintillation counter a device for detecting ionization events, permitting determination of the concentration of radioisotopes in the body or other substance.

count·er

(kown'ter),
A device that counts, usually scintillations.

/coun·ter/ (koun´ter) an instrument to compute numerical value; in radiology, a device for enumerating ionizing events.
Coulter counter  an automatic instrument used in enumeration of formed elements in the peripheral blood.
Geiger counter , Geiger-Müller counter an amplifying device that indicates the presence of ionizing particles, particularly β particles.
scintillation counter  a device for detecting ionization events, permitting determination of the concentration of radioisotopes in the body or other substance.

counter

A device which quantifies electromagnetic or particular signals from a source.

(kown'tĕr)
A device that counts.

counter,

n a device for enumerating ionizing events.
counter, Geiger-Muller (G-M counter, Geiger counter),
n.pr a highly sensitive gas-filled device that measures radiation.
counter, proportional,
n a gas-filled radiation detection tube in which the pulse produced is proportional to the number of ions formed in the gas by the primary ionizing particle.
counter, scintillation
n a combination of phosphor, photomultiplier tube, and associated circuits for counting the light emissions that are produced in the phosphor.

Coulter counter
Geiger counter, Geiger-Müller counter
a radiation counter using a gas-filled tube that indicates the presence of ionizing particles.
scintillation counter
a device for detecting beta and gamma rays, permitting determination of the concentration of radioisotopes in the body or other substance. It is more important for gamma rays, which are poorly measured by a Geiger counter.

Patient discussion about counter

Q. question about frobmyagia what meds can i take over the counter i can take for the pain sometimes its hard to tell the chest pain from the fromyagia pain. i hurt so bad.

A. Except for drugs, other things you can try include aerobic exercise as well as strength exercise, salt bath or biofeedback, although these have less evidence for their effectiveness. Of course, before you start any exercise program, consult your doctor first so you could make it right.

Take care!

Q. Does anyone know an over the counter alternative to Lovaza, omega-3 acid ethyl esters? too expensive at Dr

A. there are all sort of companies that sell Omega-3, i buy from a company named Alsepa, but there are dozens of companies. but don't be tempted to buy a very cheap one, because they can be less purified.
