A system for detecting high-energy photons includes a pixelated image detector exposed to visible light and high-energy photons, and the pixelated image detector generates one or more images from the exposure to the visible light and high-energy photons. The system further includes one or more processors operably connected to the pixelated image detector and configured to perform operations on the one or more images to discriminate between visible light and high-energy photons. A method for detecting high-energy photons includes exposing a pixelated image detector to visible light and high-energy photons and discriminating between the visible light that interacts with the pixelated image detector and the high-energy photons that interact with the pixelated image detector.
