Chapter Making Climates: Solar Radiation Management and the Ethics of Fabrication" by Maia Galarraga and Bronislaw Szerszynski. (source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary Engineering the Climate: The Ethics of Solar Radiation Management discusses the ethical issues associated with deliberately engineering a cooler climate to combat global warming.

    The main risks associated with CT scans are incidental results, leading to follow-up tests that may cause additional risks and the increased radiation exposure. The predominant factor contributing the most uncertainty to risk of exposure-induced death (REID) estimates is radiation quality. Space radiation exposure differs from that experienced by humans in the terrestrial environment, specifically in the type of radiation.

Social and Ethical Aspects of Radiation Risk Management provides a comprehensive treatment of the major ethical and social issues resulting from the use of ionizing radiation.

Ethics for Radiation Protection in Medicine is a relatively short volume providing a detailed overview of the current ethical principles and values associated with radiation protection in medicine.

Radiation from medical imaging, while providing significant benefit to many patients, may also confer a slight increase in risk of cancer [8,9]. Thus it is vital that radiologists agree with the necessity and appropriateness of a : Kay Denise Spong Lozano.

The present thesis is concerned with the ethical issues of radiation Risk and Ethics book management.1 Ethics is highly relevant, as radiation risk manage-ment requires decisions that affect health risks of people.

However, it is often hard for the public to gain insight into and understanding of the. outlining previous work on the ethics of radiation protection, professional ethics, and the ethics of human radiation experiments, the authors review ethical thinking on seven key issues related to radiation protection and ethics.

The literature on medical ethics and implicit ICRP ethical values were reviewed qualitatively, with a view to identifying a system that will help guide contemporary behaviour in radiation protection of patients.

Application of the system is illustrated in six clinical scenarios. The most important risk from exposure to radiation is cancer. Much of our knowledge about the risks from radiation is based on studies of more thansurvivors of the atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, at the end of World War II.

Summary This book presents an up to date ethical framework for radiological protection in medicine. It is consistent with the requirements of the system of radiation protection and with the. Radiation protection is based on the linear, no‐threshold model of health risks at low doses and three fundamental principles: justification, optimization, and limitation.

The practical application of radiation protection is divided into three areas: planned, emergency, and existing exposure situations. Toby Svoboda.

Chemical Exposure and Disease is precisely such a book, making complex issues clear to the general public untrained in medicine and toxicology. This book does not discuss the health effects of radiation. But to truly understand the effects of radiation, it is necessary to also know the adverse consequences of chemical exposure.

These principles are applied to ALL exposure to radiation harm; namely, to exposures to actual doses and to exposures to actual risk and potential doses, including those related to the safety of nuclear installations, and they are harmonized and applied in conjunction.

2. This book presents an up to date ethical framework for radiological protection in medicine. It is consistent with the requirements of the system of radiation protection and with the expectations of medical ethics. It presents an approach rooted in the medical tradition, and alert to contemporary social expectations.
