Report No. 105 superseded NCRP Report No. 48, of the same title, which was published in 1976. The current document is intended to meet the needs generated by the many changes in medical practice and procedures that have occurred since the publication of NCRP Report No. 48. The Report provides information about radiation, its effects on humans, protection against radiation, and regulatory control requirements and is aimed, primarily, at individuals who have limited expertise in radiation protection terminology and principles. The first seven sections of the Report provide, for all readers, general information on radiation and its uses in medicine. A subsequent section provides pertinent job related information for personnel involved with radiation sources, with each subsection addressing individuals in a particular job category. Included are subsections for administrators, animal care personnel, clinical/research laboratory personnel, diagnostic x- ray technologists, escort personnel, housekeeping personnel, maintenance and engineering personnel, inhouse fire crews, nuclear medicine technologists, nursing personnel, pathologists/morticians, physicians (nonradiation specialists), radiation therapy technologists, security personnel, shipping and receiving personnel, and ultrasonographers. Treated in appendices of the Report are emergency procedures, special considerations for patients containing sealed or unsealed therapy sources, definitions, and sources of nonionizing radiation in medical facilities.
