Australia's national database of radiation incident and events.
UV and Lasers sources are discussed together because they are both non-ionising radiation sources and are involved in similar incidents.
Transport of radiation sources occurs worldwide.
Borehole logging sources and portable density moisture gauges (PDMGs) are used to determine the density and moisture of earth.
Radiation is used in medicine for diagnosis and/or treatment.
Because sources often resemble other material, (such as steel) or are encapsulated in steal, they can be mistaken for being not radioactive.
Industrial radiography is the use of ionising radiation to v
The most common use of radiation gauges is on the production line to detect the presence or absence of particular materials.
