Title: Method of manufacturing a scintillator and a scintillator layer thus manufactured

Abstract: In order to manufacture a scintillator layer for a detector for the detection of electromagnetic radiation, transmitted by an object, which has a high spatial resolution and only a slight interaction between the scintillator elements, it is proposed to pour a molten mass of a radiation-absorbing metal, having a melting point below 350.degree. C., into intermediate spaces which extend vertically between neighboring scintillator elements.
