Published Institute of Physics & Engineering In Medicine: 2002: IPEM Report Series


This publication has been commissioned and published by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine with the support of the regulatory government and professional bodies to provide a good practice guide on all aspects of ionising radiation protection in the clinical environment. The first two chapters lay the foundation for the main ionising radiation regulations. There are a further seventeen chapters relating to each specialty or specialist radiation protection application. Some specific advice is summarised in the twenty-one Appendices, which also contain pro formas, flow charts, contact details and over 150 references. The Medical and Dental Guidance Notes will be an essential reference book for all those working with ionising radiation in medical or dental practice, including medical and dental staff, radiographers, scientific and technical staff, and their employers.
