Applied Radiobiology and Radiation Protection
This book aims to give concise coverage of the physical and biological basics of radiation biology and protection. Beginning with a description of the methods of particle detection and dosimetric evaluation, the book discusses the effects of ionizing radiation on man, from the initial physico-chemical phase of interaction to their conceivable pathological consequences."
