Description. Presenting the proceedings of the International Conference on Radiation Protection in Medicine: Setting the Scene for the Next Decade, the publication aims to indicate gaps in current approaches to radiation protection in medicine; identify tools for improving radiation protection in medicine; review advances, challenges and opportunities in the field; and assess.

INTRODUCTION. In modern radiotherapy, when using an electron beam, lead and low-melting point alloy lead (LML) are widely used to protect the critical non-target tissues and define the field size (1,2).However as a kind of heavy metal, lead is a source of pollution to the environment ().In addition, LML, with a composition of approximately % lead, 50% Cited by: New features in SCALE include new and group ENDF/B-V derived libraries, KENO-VI, CSAS6, QAD-CGGP (from CCC), QADS, new capability for criticality search on material concentrations, enhanced graphical capabilities, new cross-section processing features in NITAWL-II, improved portability, and minor modifications.

In its present. REVOLUTIONARY CONCEPTS OF RADIATION SHIELDING FOR HUMAN EXPLORATION OF SPACE 1. INTRODUCTION At the request of NASA Headquarters, code UG, a workshop was held at Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) to assess a list of “Revolutionary Physical Sciences Radiation Protection Strategies,” ( by:   A more detailed radiological protection, radiation safety and radiation shielding assessment of HIE-ISOLDE eventually leading to more accurate results and smaller discrepancies would require further computational resources, better quality of the cross-section data, even more sophisticated Monte Carlo simulation programs and by: 7.

Introduction. In recent years the use of Monte Carlo (MC) simulations has rapidly increased in the space domain, with applications ranging from instrument and detector response verification to radiation shielding optimization, component effects, support of scientific studies, and analysis of biological effects (Santin et al., ).New radiation shielding materials have been tracked Cited by: With over 30 years of experience in radiation protection and shielding design for medical, industrial and research facilities, I can take care of all your radiation shielding needs.

I am willing to work with you so that together we can find practical and effective radiation safety solutions.
