Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: 'An Introduction to Radiation Protection' is a comprehensive account of the nature of the hazards presented by ionizing radiation and the methods of protection. It takes the reader through the general background of the subject, the underlying principles applied to the control of radiation hazards, including chapters on human physiology, the biological effects of radiation and radiation detection and measurement, before moving to more specialized topics such as radiation protection in the nuclear power industry and in medicine. It also covers radioactive waste management and radiological emergencies.

Now in its fourth edition, the text has been completely revised and updated to reflect the significant changes that have occurred in this area in recent years. The most recent ICRP recommendations are included, the section on legistlation has been expanded to emphasize European and International requirements in addition to those of the UK, while the chapter on radiological emergencies has been rewritten to highlight international developments arising from the Chernobyl accident. These in conjunction with a number of other important changes, will ensure the continuing value of the text as a comprehensive introduction to this field, and it will remain essential reading for those working in nuclear power, nuclear medicine, and in other industries requiring an involvement with radiation.
