Cesium Salts in Medical Imaging

Scintillation / Medical Imaging

Activated cesium salts are an integral part in scintillation detectors. They absorb high-energy radiation such as x-rays and ɣ-rays, and scintillate instantaneously, i.e. reemit the absorbed energy in the form of the visible light.

Activated cesium salts are successfully used in the following application:

  • Medical imaging: digital radiography (CR, DR) and tomography (CT, PET, SPECT),
  • Particle physics (calorimeter in projects such as CLEO, BaBAR, GLAST),
  • Security imaging, like airport scanners,
  • Non-destructive testing.
