Abstract
Various scintillation cameras using image intensifiers are described and compared in their important imaging characteristics with existing instrumentation. The main advantages of image intensifier cameras are in the areas of positional resolution, count-rate capability and system simplicity. The main problem in the past has been the general lack of good gamma-ray energy discrimination which results in low contrast images in clinical situations. Good energy discrimination is in principle possible with several of the described systems.
