Synopsis

Although radiation accidents are rare and often complex in nature, they are of great concern not only to the patient and involved medical staff, but to the media and public as well. Yet there are few if any comprehensive publications on the medical management of radiation accidents. Medical Management of Radiation Accidents provides a complete reference for those concerned with radiation accidents nationally as well as abroad. Substantially different from the first edition, which dealt predominantly with radiation accident experiences in the United States, this updated and revised Second Edition represents an international cooperative effort that reflects current international approaches and experiences related to the medical management of radiation accidents.

It is organized into areas that include: * the fundamental aspects, medical characteristics, and classification of radiation accidents * aspects of radiation on the entire body and specific tissues * the history of accidents throughout the world * a general overview of certain types of accidents with specific examples * a follow-up of persons accidentally exposed to radiation with considerations related to epidemiological studies and a few selected examples * radiation protection and dosimetry issues, psychological considerations, and accidental exposure of pregnant females. The majority of this text is a Russian-United States effort; however, it includes work from authors from Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Japan, and Peru.
