TITLEHealth Physics Society: Radiation Fact Sheets
DATE PUBLISHED10 September 2009
DATE ACCESSED26 August 2015

This web page, part of the Health Physics Society’s website, provides fact sheets about radiation, as well as definitions of terms that are often used in radiation science. The Health Physics Society specializes in radiation safety, so this site was designed to educate the public about radiation and to be used as a resource by members of the society. The website contains links to information about careers in health physics that require an understanding of the dangers, prevention, and control of radiation. Included are also links to organizations involved with or interested in health physics and to the websites of U.S. government agencies. In an effort to communicate highly technical matter, the fact sheets contain some compromises between intelligibility to the general public and scientific rigor.
