Title: System and method for monitoring a wellbore

Abstract

A detector assembly includes a scintillator configured to generate a light signal in response to an impinging radiation signal from an object, where the scintillator has a first end and a second end. Further, the detector assembly includes a first detector disposed adjacent the scintillator and configured to receive a first portion of the light signal from the scintillator and a second detector operatively coupled to the second end of the scintillator and configured to receive a second portion of the light signal from the scintillator. The detector assembly also includes a reflector operatively coupled to the scintillator and the first detector and configured to guide the light signal from the scintillator to the first detector, where the reflector is configured to redirect the first portion of the light signal by a determined amount to reduce a path length between a radiation source, the object, and the scintillator.
