9789810221164: Introduction to Radiation Protection Dosimetry

One of the essential characteristics of life is the exchange of matter and energy between organisms and their environment. Radiation is one form of energy that has always existed in nature and will always be the companion of human beings throughout life. Technically, radiation protection is the measure to reduce exposure to radiation, and radiation dosimetry is the measurement of radiation doses. This book contains up-to-date information obtained from sources such as ICRP-60, UNSCEAR-1993, and ICRU-47. The first part describes the fundamental physical aspects of radiation dosimetry with reference to radiation protection, while the second part shows the dose measurements resulting from radiation exposure to various sources around us. Though the book is designed and written for undergraduate students in science and engineering, it should also be of use as a reference book for graduate students and professionals.

Book Description World Scientific Publishing Co Pte Ltd, Singapore, 1995. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 218 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. One essential characteristic of life is the exchange of matter and energy between organisms and their environment. Radiation is a form of energy that has always been around in nature and will forever be the companion of human beings throughout life. In order to assess the impact of radiation exposures properly, it is essential to introduce appropriate quantities and units which can then be used for quantification of exposures from various sources. In principle, radiation protection is mainly aimed at controlling radiation exposure, while radiation dosimetry deals primarily with the measurement of relevant radiation quantities especially doses. This book is divided into two parts. The first contains up-to-date definitions of the most significant radiation quantities including their interpretation. In the second part, the exposures of both individuals and population at large to various types of natural and man-made sources are compared and discussed. The concept of quantities and units as well as analysis of exposure due to various sources in our environment is based on the latest, highly regarded authentic sources such as ICRU, ICRP, IAEA and particularly UNSCEAR reports and recommendations. The material reflects the latest review of the current terminology in radiation protection dosimetry and the contemporary assessment of radiation exposures of the population, radiation workers and patients.
