scintillation detector

[sin′tilā′shən]
Etymology: L, scintillatio, sparkling
1 a device that detects the light emitted by a crystal subjected to ionizing radiation. A photomultiplier tube in the detector converts the light into an electric signal that can be processed further. An array of scintillation detectors is used in a gamma camera.
2 a device used to measure the amount of radioactivity in an area of the body.
