Radiation has a great impact on human life and health, so much attention is paid to new types of detectors. The latest type of pixel detectors work like digital cameras. Due to their high resolution, they are used to detect different types of radiation (X-rays, gamma radiation, neutron radiation, alpha radiation). Radiography and computed tomography (CT) use X-ray photons to study the human body and changes in it. Pixel detector technology has been applied in X-ray CT, in prototype systems for digital mammography, in CT images for mammography and for beta and gamma-ray radiography of biological samples. These instruments are also used for purposes such as the characterization of pharmaceutical products, the evaluation and synthesis of new materials, and the detection of counterfeit drugs. This paper provides an overview of the use of pixel detectors and the estimation of alpha particle range using Monte Carlo SRIM simulation software.
