Nonionizing Radiation Protection in Medical Environments describes how medical practitioners can safely use nonionizing radiation sources such as magnetic resonance imaging, lasers and ultrasound devices, for surgical, therapeutic, and diagnostic purposes. Focusing on the professional, operational, and regulatory aspects of nonionizing radiation protection, the book covers virtually all regions of the world. The theoretical background is based on current regulatory frameworks and is complemented by practical sections and professional discussions by the world’s leading medical and health physics professionals.
