On the cover: Preparing for change of radionuclide source in the IRINA-phantom in connection with an efficiency calibration of a whole-body counter used to determine the whole-body burden of radiocesium in humans (e.g., the Lund reference group). Picture taken in September 2000 at the Dept. of Radiation Physics in Malmö (Malmö University Hospital), Sweden. See article by C. L. Rääf et al. on page 366 for more information.
