Scintillations are minute flashes of light which are produced by certain materials when they absorb radiation. These materials are variously called fluorescent materials, fluors, scintillators or phosphors.

The gamma camera, also called scintillation camera, is the most commonly used imaging device in nuclear medicine.

It simultaneously detects radiation from the entire FOV and enables the acquisition of dynamic as well as static images of the area of interest in the human body [67]. Gamma Cameras The most widespread of nuclear medical diagnostics.

Gamma cameras or scintillation cameras are pieces of apparatus which allow radiologists to carry out 'scintigraphy scans', tests which provide detailed diagnoses about the functioning of the thyroid, the heart, the lungs and many other parts of the body.

Scintigraphy scans get their name from the ability of some crystals (such. Scintillation detectors are used for the determination of the high-energy part of the X-ray spectrum. In scintillation detectors the material of the detector is excited to luminescence (emission of visible or near-visible light photons) by the absorbed photons or particles.

Planar scintigraphy. • → used in nuclear medicine imaging = emission imaging = radioactive source inside patient’s body • In both SPECT and planar scintigraphy radiation source used = mainly 99 à → keV -rays → hence the name gamma camera • Patient lies beneath gamma camera positioned close to organ of interest.

The examples are not limited to the quality control tests, but include clinical images obtained from unsuspected malfunctioning in the scintillation camera and/or computer system. This report,"Scintillation Camera Acceptance Testing and Performance Evaluation," is the sixth in a series of AAPM is designed to provide users of the scintillation cameras with test procedures for performance evaluation.

Although the counting rate of the camera-based SPECT systems is generally lower than that of multiple detector-based SPECT systems, the data from camera-based SPECT systems are usually adequate. Hal Oscar Anger (Fig.

"Scintillation Camera" was the terse title ap­ pearing on Hal Anger*s 7-page paper published in the January issue of The Review of Scientific Instruments (7). A new and more sensitive gamma‐ray camera for visualizing sources of radioactivity is described. It consists of a lead shield with a pinhole aperture, a scintillating crystal within the shield viewed by a bank of seven photomultiplier tubes, a signal matrix circuit, a pulse‐height selector, and a cathode‐ray oscilloscope.

Scintillations that fall in a certain range of brightness, such as. After studying this book, most qualified readers will be able to perform the three types of quality control tests, i.e. acceptance, reference and routine tests for the scintillation camera (also called the gamma camera) system for each of its imaging modes.

The special camera and imaging techniques used in nuclear medicine include the gamma camera and single-photon emission-computed tomography (SPECT).

The gamma camera, also called a scintillation camera, detects radioactive energy that is emitted from the patient's body and converts it into an image. Hal Oscar Anger ( – ) was an American electrical engineer and biophysicist at Donner Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, known for his invention of the gamma camera & Well counter.

His Professional Career. Inhe invented the scintillation camera, also known as the gamma camera or Anger camera.

Then a second scintillation event occurs (book - says does not return to its baseline), generating a second pulse that is lower than the first.

A photomultiplier used in a scintillation counter should have a high-efficiency photocathode (up to percent), high gain (10 6 –10 8), and a small and highly stable electron-collection time (~10 –8 sec).

Such a collection time permits the scintillation counter to have a resolving time of not more than 10 –9 sec. The high gain of the.
