Analytical Approach to Intensity Calculation in Scintillation Detectors

  title={Analytical Approach to Intensity Calculation in Scintillation Detectors},
  author={Vovchenko Ivan and Khamitov Timur},
Scintillation detectors are widely used in modern physics, including various medical tomographs. There are two types of position-sensitive scintillation detectors: pixel arrays of "scintillatorphotomultiplier" pairs and continuous scintillator with multiple photomultipliers attached. For the last one, there are two common ways to calculate the coordinates of the scintillation flash via detector response in scintillation cameras: Anger’s method and Monte-Carlo simulation. In this article, we…

Sensitivity, Resolution, and Linearity of the Scintillation Camera

Radioisotope cameras are relatively new instruments for imaging the distribution of ?-ray or positron-emitting isotopes in vivo. They produce pictures similar to those made by medical radioisotope

A Modular Scintillation Camera for Use in Nuclear Medicine

A "modular" scintillation camera is discussed as an alternative to using Anger cameras for gamma-ray imaging in nuclear medicine. Each module is an independent gamma camera and consists of a

A more physical approach to model the surface treatment of scintillation counters and its implementation into DETECT

DETECT is a Monte Carlo simulation capable of realistically modeling the optics of scintillation detectors. A limitation of this widely used program is its lack of realism and flexibility in dealing

Continuous or pixelated scintillators?, not longer a discussion

Gamma ray detectors merging continuous and pixelated crystal arrays are described. We show a pilot study about the detector performance of an innovative scintillation design that simultaneously uses

Iterative reconstruction of detector response of an Anger gamma camera

An iterative method which allows one to obtain the response functions from flood irradiation data without imposing strict requirements on the spatial uniformity of the event distribution is described.

A novel, SiPM-array-based, monolithic scintillator detector for PET

A novel detector design with DOI correction is presented, in which a position-sensitive SiPM array is used to read out a monolithic scintillator, demonstrating excellent DOI correction.

Geant4 - A simulation toolkit

BRDF profile of Tyvek and its implementation in the Geant4 simulation toolkit.

Diffuse and specular characteristics of the Tyvek 1025-BL material are reported with respect to their implementation in the Geant4 Monte Carlo simulation toolkit. This toolkit incorporates the
