Countng prot bands after SDS-PAGE

I am cleaving a radioactive protein of 67 kD into two large fragments.  I 
then separate the fragments from the parent protein by SDS-PAGE.  I would like
to get an accurate count of the radioactive fragments from slices that are 
excised from the gel.  Is there a way to dissolve the gel and make the 
counts fully available to a liquid scintillation cocktail?
Or is there some other trick that can be used to get the same result?

Thanks in advance for any help that is offered.
