Title: Angle-sensitive gamma camera with a rotary obstruction
Description: The present invention provides an angle-sensitive camera for detecting radiation, including a stationary detector (1) and a set of simultaneously rotating gamma-ray absorbent obstructions or windows in a cylindrical obstruction element (3), rotating about an axis passing through the detector. Detection of the radiation incident from a given direction is hindered twice per device revolution. There are at least two obstructions in fixed positions at angles between 40 and 50 degrees sweeping through a spherical or cylindrical surface surrounding the detector. The azimuthal and elevation angle of the radiation direction translate uniquely into the exact times of detection hindrance during each revolution.
