The use of ionizing radiation is widespread and virtually indispensable to modern society for industrial and medical applications. In addition to the many benefits afforded by the beneficial uses of radiation, there are also associated hazards, such as industrial accidents, medical overexposures, disposal of radioactive waste, environmental radioactivity, accidents from ‘orphan’ sources, and malevolent uses. Even where there is a good infrastructure, such as in the United States of America and the European Union, hundreds of sources have been lost. Therefore, it is essential for every country to have adequate infrastructures to ensure the safety and security of all radiation sources, including X ray machines, accelerators, sealed radioactive sources, radioactive waste and environmental radioactivity.
