The phenomenon of evidence of reactions of non- radioactive, low-energy transmutation of light elements and their isotopes in plant, animals and minerals have came to be known as biological transmutations. Biological transmutation causes some minerals transmute into other minerals.

Radioactive isotopes have many useful applications. In medicine, for example, cobalt-60 is extensively employed as a radiation source to arrest the development of cancer. When a radioactive isotope is added in small amounts to comparatively large quantities of the stable element, it behaves exactly the same as the ordinary isotope chemically; it can, however, be traced with a Geiger counter or other detection device.

Radioactive isotope, any of the species of the same chemical element that have different masses and unstable .

Radioactive isotope, any of the species of the same chemical element that have different masses and unstable nuclei that emit radiation. Iodine-131 has proved effective in treating hyperthyroidism.

The book begins with the principles and basic processes associated with radioactive decay, production of radioactive materials, and detection and measurement of radiation, and progresses to discussions and illustrations of the applications and problems of radiation measurements in biology and medicine. Hazards associated with the use of radioactive materials are also presented. Topics which are given special emphasis include liquid scintillation counting, autoradiography and radio chromatography, statistical analysis of radioactivity measurements, and radiation safety. Topics covered for the first time in a book of this type include semiconductor radiation detectors solubilizers and decolorizers for liquid scintillation samples, Cerenkov counting techniques, stationary gamma imaging cameras, absorbed fractions and equilibrium dose constants.
