National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP)

The organizations are known today as the International Commission on Radiological Protection and, in the United States, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP). Today, as we have many times in the past, we honor Dr. Lauriston Sale Taylor, the . representative to the 1928 Congress, for his dedication and leadership in the early growth of NCRP. He actually introduced the term "trans-science," which he defined as the policy-relevant fields for which scientists have no answers for many of the questions being asked.

The Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority should always be called when a potential ionizing radiation accident takes place within Norway.

Radiobiology and Radiation Protection: The Past Century and Prospects for the Future. Basic Radiation Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.

Lauriston S. Taylor (1 June 1902 – 26 November 2004) was an American physicist known for his work in the field of radiation protection and measurement. He established standards for X-ray radiation exposure for the first time in the 1920s, which eventually led to a group of government organizations that set the standards over the next 50 years. Taylor remained active in debates about radiation exposure into his 80s, often advocating the viewpoint that small doses of radiation were not important.

Units of Measurement of Ionizing Radiation, rad (radiation absorbed dose) - a unit of energy absorbed from ionizing radiation, rem/REM (roentgen equivalent in man) – one of the units used to measure the biological effects of ionizing radiation

Units of Measurement of Ionizing Radiation, rad (radiation absorbed dose) - a unit of energy absorbed from ionizing radiation, rem/REM (roentgen equivalent in man) – one of the units used to measure the biological effects of ionizing radiation. Federal Guidelines, 5 REM per year is the whole body MPD (maximum permissible dose), Not anticipated to cause damage at or below this level for your lifetime, Recommended that radiation levels be kept as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA). Other Sources of Radiation.

Lecture 2 - Introduction to Radiation Biology and Physics. Basic Radiation Protection and Radiobiology. Ionizing radiation is generally harmful and potentially lethal to living things but can have health benefits in radiation therapy for the treatment of cancer and thyrotoxicosis. RAD 432 Radiation Biology. Physics of Radiobiology. Its most common impact is the induction of cancer with a latent period of years or decades after exposure.
