Attix Introduction to Radiological Physics and Radiation Dosimetry taking into account the substantial developments in dosimetry since its first edition. This monograph covers charged and uncharged particle interactions at a level consistent with the advanced use of the Monte Carlo method in dosimetry; radiation dosimetrj, macroscopic behaviour and the characterization of radiation fields and beams are covered in detail.


A number of chapters include addenda presenting derivations and discussions that offer new insight into established dosimetric principles and concepts.

The theoretical aspects of dosimetry are given in the comprehensive chapter on cavity theory, followed by the description of primary measurement standards, ionization chambers, chemical dosimeters and solid state detectors. Chapters on applications include reference dosimetry for standard and small fields in radiotherapy, diagnostic radiology and interventional procedures, dosimetry of unsealed and sealed radionuclide sources, and neutron beam dosimetry.
