Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2016083021A1] The invention relates to a scintillation detector with which high count rates and/or high resolutions can be achieved. The scintillator of the claimed scintillation detector is formed from pixels (2) separated from one another by intermediate spaces (4). Alternatively, or additionally, the surface of said scintillator is divided, by grooves, into pixels (2). Such a structure allows not just a particularly high resolution; when using multiple modules it also allows high count rates in the range of approximately 20 MHz.
