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 and 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 practical 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.

This is the book I have been seeking for years to use as the text for my radiation protection course for graduate medical physics students... a superb textbook for all those interested in radiation protection in medicine. I highly recommend it to professional medical physicists, students and teachers. Medical Physics, Vol 30, No 5 The text is easily readable and more than adequately delivers the objectives of the editors... The contributors and editors should be commended on the production of such an excellent text. Radiation Protection Dosimetry, Vol 106, No 2
