Laboratory Training Manual on the Use of Radionuclides and Radiation in Animal Research, Third Edition.
International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna (Austria).
This publication is written for those researchers who are interested in the use of radionuclides and radiation in the animal science field. Part I presents topics intended to provide the theoretical base of radionuclides which is important in order to design an experiment for drawing maximum information from it. The topics included in this division are: aspects of ionizing radiation, its detection and measurement, its associated hazards, and some common applications. Laboratory exercises in this division are designed with an aim to provide basic and some advanced skills in this area. Part II, entitled Applied Part, provides a number of detailed practical situations for the use of radionuclides and radiation. There is a small section devoted to exercises on the preparation of radionuclides and procedures with animals. It should provide a systematized course of study for a training program for persons in the field. (Author/PS)
