radiation sources, as in relation to this protection against ionising radiation is governed by the regulations on the transport of dangerous goods. (4) With respect to the protection of people against ionising radiation, the provisions of this Act shall not apply to exposure to naturally occurring radiation. The Dosimetry of Ionizing Radiation, Volume I focuses on the development in radiation dosimetry, which has its origin in the medical application of ionizing radiation with the discovery of X-rays. This book discusses the irradiation of human beings and the biosphere by ionizing radiation from different sources, which is subjected to increased.

in providing advice on protection against non-ionizing radiation (NIR) exposure to serve both as a guide for the cerned with the physical characteristics and sources of NIR and possible biological and adverse health effects. The agent external. Table 1. Relevant mechanisms of interaction, adverse effects, biologically effective physical. RSSC RADIATION PROTECTION 07/11 RADIATION PROTECTION I. EXTERNAL RADIATION PROTECTION The three basic methods used to reduce the external radiation hazard are time, distance, and shielding. Good radiation protection practices require optimization of these fundamental techniques. A. Time.

Radiation protection and safety of radiation sources: International basic safety standards. Interim edition, 3 November The objective of this publication is to establish requirements for the protection of people and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing radiation and for the safety of radiation sources. Radiation protection, also known as radiological protection, is defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as "The protection of people from harmful effects of exposure to ionizing radiation, and the means for achieving this". Exposure can be from a source of radiation external to the human body or due to internal irradiation caused by the ingestion of radioactive contamination.

Ann ICRP. ;9(1) Protection against ionizing radiation from external sources used in medicine. A report of Committee 3 of the International Commission on Radiological Protection. In external beam radiotherapy, radiation beams originating externally to the patient are directed towards the treatment site.

These beams are usually created through the use of a linear accelerator or a cobalt unit. In brachytherapy, small and encapsulated radioactive sources are placed directly into or near the volume to be treated.

The aim of protection against ionizing radiation is to prevent, or significantly reduce, the radiation damage of exposed individuals, their descendants and humanity as a whole.

At the same time we should be able to the sources of ionizing radiation to our benefit. Radiation protection technology uses biological, chemical and physical approaches.
