The new radiation detection instruments used by health physicists are smaller and lighter than their predecessors. They are also "smart" instruments that can log, plot, and analyze data and store information in a form that can be downloaded into a computer for further analysis or for record keeping. In this book, a group of eminent health physicists update the reader's knowledge of the attributes, limitations, and proper application of the new health physics instruments so that radiation sources may be safely used for the benefit of individuals and the community.
