Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis
One hundred years after the discovery of radioactivity by Becquerel, the analysis of radioactivity has become of great significance to many disciplines and persons working in fields as diverse as nuclear medicine, radiopharmacy, clinical diagnosis, health physics, biological sciences, food preservation, industry, environmental monitoring, nuclear power, and nuclear safety and safeguards. The accurate measurement of the activity of radionuclides is today a sine qua non condition for better knowledge of the environment we live in and for progress and advancement in various scientific and technological disciplines. Since the International Atomic Energy Agency was founded in 1 9 5 7 , global cooperation in the peaceful use of nuclear energy through nuclear power production and the use of radionuclides and radiation sources has played a significant role in world development. The advances being made in the peaceful application of nuclear technology depend to a great extent on the ease and accuracy of radioactivity measurements. The use of radioactive materials, their production, and the safe disposal of radioactive waste rely greatly on these precise measurements.
Several international experts in various aspects of radionuclide analysis have contributed to this valuable book. As a handbook, it integrates the modern principles of radiation detection and measurement with the practical guidelines and procedures needed by scientists, physicians, engineers, and technicians from many diverse disciplines. It provides the information needed to measure all types of radioactivity, from low levels naturally present in the environment to high levels found in the production, applications, and disposal of radionuclides. This book will facilitate further refinements in the measurement and analysis of radioactivity needed either for scientific investigations or for the safe and peaceful applications of radioactive and radiation sources.
