559 pages ; Dimensions (inches): 1.30 x 9.62 x 6.50
Publisher: Wiley-Interscience;
ISBN: 0471297119; 1 edition (January 15, 1999)
Book Description:
Radiation litigation, the cleanup and decommissioning of nuclear facilities, radon exposure, nuclear medicine, food irradiation, stricter regulatory climate—these are some of the reasons health physics and radiation protection professionals are increasingly called upon to upgrade their skills. Designed to prepare candidates for the American Board of Health Physics Comprehensive examination (Part I) and other certification examinations, Basic Health Physics: Problems and Solutions introduces professionals in the field to radiation protection principles and their practical application in routine and emergency situations. It features more than 650 worked examples illustrating concepts under discussion along with an in-depth coverage of sources of radiation, standards and regulations, biological effects of ionizing radiation, instrumentation, external and internal dosimetry, counting statistics, monitoring and interpretations, operational health physics, transportation and waste, nuclear emergencies, and more. Reflecting for the first time the true scope of health physics at an introductory level, Basic Health Physics: Problems and Solutions gives readers the tools to properly evaluate challenging situations in all areas of radiation protection, including the medical, university, power reactor, fuel cycle, research reactor, environmental, non-ionizing radiation, and accelerator health physics.

The Health Physics Solutions Manual
Herman Cember , Thomas E. Johnson
Textbook Binding:
442 pages
ISBN: 0962596361; 1 edition (March 21, 1999)
Book Description:
Dr. Cember's "Introduction to Health Physics" has been an essential text in many graduate and undergraduate health physics programs for years. It has also been the primary text for numerous CHPs during their exam preparations. This solutions manual is an excellent companion to the textbook. It provides effective examples of how to set up and solve these practical health physics problems. The logical approach used in these solutions will assist new students in getting a clearer understanding of health physics principles. HPs preparing for the certification exam will appreciate and benefit from learning the problem solving methods demonstrated throughout the manual. I highly recommend getting both of these books together.

The focus is on the final status survey performed during the later stages of decommissioning projects, and is written to expand upon and provide greater technical detail than MARSSIM (Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual) in areas of survey design strategies.

The book will be essential for those responsible for the planning and designing final status surveys, and reporting the final status survey results; while health physics technicians will benefit from practical chapters on instrumentation and survey procedures.
