Summary
One-of-a-kind handbook unequaled for practical use by professionals and concerned laypeople. Essentially a usable supplement to Gofman's Radiation and Human Health, it is designed to provide the data needed for evaluating health effects (specifically, risk of cancer) from diagnostic X-rays and to identify opportunities for dose reduction. Easily understood instructions for adjustments and conversions are given. An immense amount of information is organized according to type of X-ray, body part, sex, age, and risk of future disease
