Detector applications are discussed for three fundamental areas of Biology and Medicine: Radiobiology, Photobiology and Nuclear Medicine. The detectors discussed include photomultiplier tubes, image intensifier tubes, scintillators, semiconductors and spark chambers. Examples of biomedical work in progress are given which have been made possible by the development of adequate detectors. The biological and medical significance of the work is discussed and some needed detector advances are pointed out.
