Performance characteristics of a versatile and inexpensive plastic scintillator are described. This detector system is sensitive enough to be useful for 1-137 uptake studies and can also be utilised to monitor patients administered with therapeutic quantities of radioactivity. The uptake values obtained by this system are compared to the ones obtained using Nal(TI) detector. Statistical analysis of the data does not demonstrate any
Significant difference between the two values.
