Gamma-Ray Spectrometry in the Environment (Report 53)

ICRU Report No. 53 was prepared in recognition of the fact that methods for quickly assessing radionuclides in the environment have become increasingly important, particularly in connection with accidental releases from nuclear facilities. Gamma-ray spectrometry, based on the measurement of the spectral distribution of the photon fluence, is used for the determination of activity levels in the ground or in the air and of radionuclide-specific dose quantities.


Particle Counting in Radioactivity Measurements (Report 52)

This Report describes the principles involved in counting, or measuring, the flux of directly or indirectly ionizing particles, including photons, produced by radioactive samples. The emphasis is on particles and counting, i.e., on discrete random events and especially on fundamental aspects.


Quantities and Units in Radiation Protection Dosimetry (Report 51)

ICRU Report No. 51 supersedes part B of ICRU Report 33 entitled "Quantities and Units for Use in Radiation Protection". Since that report was published in 1980, much discussion has taken place on this subject. This led to the introduction of operational quantities for the specification of dose equivalents for area and individual monitoring for external radiations, as discussed in ICRU Reports 39 (1985), 43 (1988) and 47 (1992).


Prescribing, Recording, and Reporting Photon Beam Therapy (Report 50)

This Report seeks to promote the use of acommon language for specifying and reporting the doses in radiation therapy, as well as the volumes in which they are prescribed. Report 50 completely supersedes and updates ICRU Report 29 (published in 1978).


Stopping Powers and Ranges for Proton and Alpha Particles, with Data Disk (Report 49D)

Stopping Powers and Ranges for Proton and Alpha Particles, with Data Disk, provides a printed copy of the Report and disks (both 3-1/2" and 5-1/4") containing all of the collision (electronic), nuclear and total stopping powers, csda ranges and detour factors of ICRU Report 49.


Stopping Power and Ranges for Protons and Alpha Particles (Report 49)

ICRU Report No. 49 is another report in the series providing compilations of data important in various aspects of radiation assessment. Stopping powers for electrons and positrons were provided in ICRU Report 37 published in 1984. ICRU Report 49 provides comparable information for protons and alpha particles.
