Description:

A dynamic, all- inclusive overview of the field of health physics

< div style="text-align: justify; font-family: Arial;">

If it's an important topic in the field of health physics, you'll find it in this trusted text . . . in sections on physical principles, atomic and nuclear structure, radioactivity, biological effects of radiation, and instrumentation. This one-of-a-kind guide spans the entire scope of the field and offers a problem-solving approach that will serve you throughout your career.

Features:

  • A thorough overview of need-to-know topics, from a review of physical principles to a useful look at the interaction of radiation with matter
  • More than 380 "Homework Problems" and 175+ "Example Problems"
  • Essential background material on quantitative risk assessment for radiation exposure
  • Authoritative radiation safety and environmental health coverage that supports the International Commission on Radiological Protection's standards for specific populations
  • High-yield appendices to expand your comprehension of chapter material
  • NEW! Essential coverage of non- ionizing radiation, lasers and microwaves, computer use in dose calculation, and dose limit recommendations

Review quote

"Overall, this is a good introductory health physics book for students in health and medical physics and could be used as a study guide and reference by health and medical physicists. The fourth edition has improvements and updates over the third edition, including the addition of NCRP 147 shielding methodology and ICRP 66 respiratory tract dosimetric model, the discussion of machine sources of radiation, and a revamped chapter on non-ionizing radiation."--Doody's Review Service
