Overview

Practical Radiation Protection in Healthcare is a practical guide for medical physicists and others whose work involves any aspect of hospital radiation protection. Written by workers experienced in the field, the book includes discussion of general radiation protection principles and provides detailed coverage of specialist topic areas involving both ionising an non-ionising radiations. The book provides guidance on methods that may be used to tackle the wide range of tasks that a physicist working in this area might encounter and should provide the first port of call when a problem in radiation protection is encountered. The book has been written in a format to allow easy reference, so that it can be used as a working guide as well as a textbook. Throughout, the emphasis is on a pracitcal approach. The first half of the book covers general principles and topics applicable to all areas of radiation protection. The subject is dealt with in general terms, with descriptions of techniques and methods required to implement radiation protection measures. The chapters covering background material provide the basic knowledge which is important in understanding the subject. The second half of the book deals with practical guidance on the approach and techniques used in hospitals. The book contains comprehensive coverage of all areas that a radiation protection physicist would encounter. Each specialist area is covered in a separate chapter to allow easy reference with individual chapters being assigned to different types of non-ionising radiations. Qualified and trainee medical physicists, lecturers, radiographers, radiologists and those working with non-ionising radiation will find this an invaluable guide to field of radiation protection.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcum D. Martz, B.S., CHP (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This is a complete, although somewhat compact, guide to virtually every aspect of radiation protection in healthcare, written for the international professional. It provides readers with a summary of the key issues on a broad range of health physics issues, with excellent references to guide users to more in-depth coverage.
Purpose: Written to provide a practical reference manual to radiation protection in healthcare, covering all aspects from basic physics to the current uses of radioactive materials and machine-produced radiation. This is the first book of its kind, and should become the standard for medical health physics practice.
Audience: The authors intend the book for medical physicists and other professionals who work with radiation or in radiation protection. The book assumes some knowledge of radiation physics and serves as a reference for areas within radiation protection practice that such a professional may not have detailed knowledge of. The scope of the book is complete for the broad range of healthcare radiation utilizations.
Features: The book covers basic radiation physics, protection philosophy, including an excellent guide of regulatory framework, utilization of radiation in healthcare and the protection needs for each, and a guide to non-ionizing radiation as well. The strength of this book is the completeness of the coverage of topics, as well as the reference guide and a list of abbreviations commonly used in the field.
Assessment: This is an excellent encyclopedic guide to radiation protection in healthcare, particularly useful to the practitioner anticipating new technologies. There is no comparable book in print.
