Cerium-doped lanthanum bromide, LaBr3 (Ce), scintillator shows attracting properties for spectroscopy that makes it a suitable solution for security, medical, geophysics and high energy physics applications. Here, the performance parameters of a cylindrical LaBr3 (Ce) scintillator was investigated. The first aspect is the determination of the efficiency for γ - ray detection, measured with GEANT4 simulation toolkit from 10keV to 10MeV energy range. The second is the detailed study of background radiation of LaBr3 (Ce). It has relatively high intrinsic radiation background due to naturally occurring 138La and 227Ac radioisotopes.
