In this study, we investigated the relation between crystallinity and scintillation properties of Pr:LuAG crystals grown by Czochralski (Cz) method. The crystallinity was determined as the dislocation density using the X-ray rocking curve technique. The scintillation pulse-height spectra were collected under 662 keV 137 Cs γ-ray excitation to evaluate the light yield and energy resolution. It was confirmed that both the light yield and energy resolution correlates with the crystalinity; however, the other factors also have an influence.
