Description

This book reviews ionising radiation quantities and the relationships between them and discusses the principles underlying their measurement. The emphasis is on the determination of absorbed dose and related dosimetric quantities.

Table of Contents

The radiation field. Interactions of ionising radiations with matter. Measurement of fluence, energy fluence and spectral distributions. Direct measurement of absorbed dose. Exposure and its measurement. The concept of kerma and its relationships. Determination of absorbed dose via exposure or air kerma. Determination of absorbed dose and exposure from cavity theory. Comparison of electron, photon and neutron dosimetry. The dosimetry of radionuclides. Methods of dosimetry. Dosimetry in radiation protection. Appendix - Physical quantities and units. References. Index.
