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.

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.
