This book takes a very practical approach to radiation protection and presents very readable information for anyone working in the radiation field or with radioactive material. Offering information rarely found elsewhere, the authors describe in detail both the basic principles and practical implementation recommendations of radiation protection. Each chapter includes self-assessment review questions and problems, with answers provided, to help readers master important information. Coupled with a teacher’s manual, this book is highly suitable as an undergraduate text for students preparing for careers as X-ray, radiation oncology, or nuclear medicine technologists. It can also be used as a reference for residents in any radiology and radiation oncology, medical personnel, or anyone working with radioactive materials such as those at a nuclear power plant.
It is most appropriate either for an introductory health or medical physics course on radiation protection or for training radiology and nuclear medicine technologists and residents in the radiation protection aspects of their respective vocations … This book can also be used by technologists, physicians, and physicists for self-study or as a quick reference for basic information on radiation protection. — Journal of Nuclear Medicine
