The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements
(NCRP) published Report No. 48, Radiation Protection for Medical
and Allied Health Personnel in 1976. Many changes in medical practice
and procedures involving ionizing radiation have occurred in
the intervening 13 years. As a result, the Council determined to
prepare this new report to supersede NCRP Report No. 48. The
primary objective of this new report is to update the material to
include new radiation sources used in medicine.

This is the second National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP) report that provides radiation protection
guidance for astronauts working in low-earth orbit. The guidance in
this Report supercedes the radiation exposure limit recommendations
provided in NCRP Report No. 98 that was published in 1989.
Readers may find some of the radiobiological information in Report
No. 98 to continue to be relevant and of interest and, therefore,
Report No. 98 will continue to be available from NCRP Publications.
This Report was developed under the auspices of Program Area
Committee 2 of the National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP), the committee that is concerned with operational
radiation safety. The Report addresses the structural shielding
design for medical x-ray imaging facilities and supersedes the
parts that address such facilities in NCRP Report No. 49, Structural
Shielding Design and Evaluation for Medical Use of X Rays and
Gamma Rays of Energies Up to 10 MeV, which was issued in
Cerium, an element in the lanthanide series, has a number of
radioactive isotopes. Several of these are produced in abundance in
nuclear fission reactions associated with nuclear industry operations
or detonation of nuclear devices. This report summarizes our present
knowledge of the relevant physical, chemical, and biological properties
of radiocerium as a basis for establishing radiation protection guidelines.
This report of the National Council on Radiation Protection and
Measurements (NCRP) , successor to the National Committee on Radiation
Protection and hleasurements, is concerned with the spccification
of sealed sources of nuclides which emit gamma rays-sources
useful in brachytherapy. The report resulted from the Council's belief
that a single well-defined method for specifying the radionuclide in an
encapsulated source would be advantageous for both the users and the
suppliers of such sources....
Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection offers professionals and advanced students a comprehensive coverage of the major concepts that underlie the origins and transport of ionizing radiation in matter. Understanding atomic structure and the physical mechanisms of radiation interactions is the foundation on which much of the current practice of radiological health protection is based.
