Adopting a proactive approach and focusing on emerging
radiation-generating technologies, "Health Physics in the 21st
Century" meets the growing need for a presentation of the relevant
radiological characteristics and hazards. As such, this monograph
discusses those technologies that will affect the health physics
and radiation protection profession over the decades to come.
After an introductory overview, the second part of this book
looks at fission and fusion energy, followed by a section devoted
to accelerators, while the final main section deals with radiation
on manned space missions. Throughout, the author summarizes the
relevant technology and scientific basis, while providing over 200
problems plus solutions to illustrate and amplify the text.
Twelve appendices add further background material to support and
enrich the topics addressed in the text, making this invaluable
reading for students and lecturers in physics, biophysicists,
clinical, nuclear and radiation physicists, as well as physicists
