Be the first to rate this product Rate this product: The first edition of Shielding Techniques addressed the many changes that have occurred-both in radiation sources and the techniques used for radiation therapy-which in turn have introduced design problems not addressed in the NCRP reports. The shielding design is both complex and critical and must be supervised by a qualified medical physicist experienced in this specialised area.

It is always advisable to have the design checked by a second knowledgeable physicist prior to submission to the regulator for approval. These regulations will state the minimum design criteria including requirements on annual and instantaneous dose equivalent rates, interlocks and other radiation safety measures.
