Radiation Protection in Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology (PDF) focuses on the professional, operational, and regulatory aspects of radiation protection. Advances in radiation medicine have resulted in new modalities and procedures, some of which have significant potential to cause serious harm. Examples include radiologic procedures that require very long fluoroscopy times, radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies, and intravascular brachytherapy.

This ebook summarizes evidence supporting changes in regulations, consensus recommendations, and health physics practices associated with these recent advances in nuclear medicine, radiology, and radiation oncology. It supports intelligent and practical methods for the protection of the public, personnel, and patients.

The ebook is based on current recommendations by the International Commission on Radiological Protection and is complemented by detailed practical sections and professional discussions by the world’s leading health physics and medical professionals.

It also includes substantial information on international aspects of radiation protection, with sections covering Asia and Oceania, Africa, the Middle East, the European Union, and North and Latin America.
