Product Description


From the reviews:

"This introduction to health physics is meant to serve as the basis for a two-course series in the study of radiation protection. … The book is meant for individuals wishing to study radiation protection/health physics. … the chapters discuss advanced concepts and mathematical models that are appropriate individuals seeking an in-depth understanding of radiation protection. … very useful as teaching text. It is clear and concise and the problems and examples further elucidate the material." (Dean W. Broga, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2008)

“The book, provides a definition for HP and a broad overview of the field. … a comprehensive text providing an overview of all relevant topics of HP. … the book can serve either as a reference for the practising HP or as a text for a course. … present the most up-to-date treatment of the topics covered.” (Michael P. Grissom, Radiation Protection Dosimetry, Vol. 138 (4), 2010)

From the Back Cover

This comprehensive text provides an overview of all relevant topics in the field of radiation protection (health physics). Radiation Protection and Dosimetry serves as an essential handbook for practicing health physics professionals, and is also ideal as a teaching text for courses at the university level. The book is organized to introduce the reader to basic principles of radiation decay and interactions, to review current knowledge and historical aspects of the biological effects of radiation, and to cover important operational topics such as radiation shielding and dosimetry. In addition to presenting the most up to date treatment of the topics and references to the literature, most chapters contain numerical problems with their solutions for use in teaching or self assessment. One chapter is devoted to Environmental Health Physics, which was written in collaboration with leading professionals in the area.

Much needed book 13 Jun. 2008
By Dean Gillis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a much needed book. I good modern overview of what you would encounter in the field of radiation protection and dosimetry. The coverage of standards and their development is often missed in other works. Since you will spend a great deal of time referring to these standards knowing the actors and history is important. As someone in the field I would have liked to have seen a little more on international standards development. It was very refreshing to see a text where equations were defined clearly. So many physics books seem to revel in making you figure out that particulars authors flavor of equation definition.
I have found the book to be a great general reference and starting point for those new to the field. It is actually an enjoyable read. And having a joke thrown in once and a while was great.

Excellent, well-written book 15 Jan. 2008
By T. Ushino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for students of radiation protection and dosimetry. It provides a great overview of health physics from radioisotope decay to non-ionizing radiation. The technical content is balanced with good practical examples. I would like to recommend this book for anyone studying health physics or preparing for the certification by the American Board of Health Physics.

Clear and accessible 29 Aug. 2011
By Steel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a grad student you are looking for clear and concise instruction for the subject you are learning. I've got experience with a number of technical books in the physics field and this is the most accessible one I've encountered yet. The author lingers over important point and doesn't waste time on derivations when not necessary. Even if you are assigned a different book for a course in Health Physics or Radiation Protection, picking this one up as a reference will serve you well.
Great Read 25 Jun. 2011
By Physics Buff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Good source of information on radioactive decay. I also like Atomic Power: Necessary Evil or Virtually Uncontrollable Force that's Wrecking the Planet? which deals with radioactive decay chemistry.
where is the book value 4 May 2014

Some specific operational topics included into the book are not present in similar books.
This, in my opinion, makes attractive Radiation Protection and Dosimetry. An introduction to Healyh Physics
