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.

scin·til·la·tion count·er

an instrument used for the detection of radioactivity; the radiation is absorbed by a scintillator (a crystal or a compound, such as POPOP, in solution) that results in minute flashes of light that are detected by a photocathode. The resultant electron emission is amplified by a photomultiplier and an amplifier.

scintillation counter

n.
A device for detecting and counting scintillations produced by ionizing radiation.

(sin'ti-lā'shŭn kown'tĕr)

For the composite dataset compiled for the current estimates, eU3O8 grades derived from gamma logging were assigned a higher priority than XRF assay results, and scintillometer derived grades were used for intervals without logging or XRF results.
During a first period of intensive observations (see the section titled "Supplementary activities"), a scintillometer was operated across the valley over the valley floor site CS-VFO (Fig.
The possibilities of detecting the occurrence of DWFs through turbulent motions in the lee of the crater using the scintillometer will also be tested.

A 1.4m mineralized interval in drillhole NWA-35 contained a 25cm section that gave an off-scale scintillometer * reading (>9999 cps)confirming the presence of high grade mineralization on the property (Mega s news release dated November 8, 2012) .
Following data reinterpretation, ALX will likely put some people on the ground in the summer of 2018 with scintillometers to look for anomalies that might previously have been missed.
