Abstract

This paper presents a novel method for making an inexpensive low resolution, wide angle gamma ray camera using a handheld inorganic scintillation detector. The method involves constructing a lead aperture and using motors to create rasterisation points that can be compiled into a pixelated gamma ray image. This method may be used as a module for handheld scintillation detectors so that the detector may be removed for other uses.
