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.

The signal intensity of scintillation detectors depends on the product of the scintillation light yield and the quantum efficiency of the photodetectors; thus, the common practical scintillators are ultraviolet (UV) and visible (VIS) photon-emitting materials since the PMT and PD devices are sensitive from UV to near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths.
