Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) camera was used as radiation detector. The methodology to use CMOS active pixel sensor for radiation monitoring purpose is discussed. A new cluster count algorithm to measure dose rates from the images captured using the commonly available CMOS cameras in cell phones and tablets for gamma radiation measurement was developed and implemented on personal computer (PC). Images were taken in standard gamma fields and analyzed on PC to generate the calibration coefficients. The algorithm was validated using 60Co source for dose rates up to 10 Gy/h by images captured on Samsung Galaxy GT-6800 tablet. The algorithm was also tested using other radiation sources such as 137Cs, 241Am, and X-rays for different dose rates.
