A common radiation detector system is an instrument that can identify the presence of radiation in the environment, on the surface and within people. In this paper I argue that the most important design criterion in a radiation detector system is its energy resolution. In the first part of the paper I explore the form of radiation detector systems encountered in nuclear medicine imaging and in the second part of the paper I reconnoiter the recent advances of radiation detector systems in nuclear
