Review:

"Overall, this is a good introductory health physics book for students in health and medical physics and could be used as a study guide and reference by health and medical physicists. The fourth edition has improvements and updates over the third edition, including the addition of NCRP 147 shielding methodology and ICRP 66 respiratory tract dosimetric model, the discussion of machine sources of radiation, and a revamped chapter on non-ionizing radiation."--"Doody's Review Service,"
