Health Care Personnel


We are happy you sought out the Health Physics Society for factual, scientific radiation-related information designed for physicians and health care staff whose patients might have questions or who may have questions themselves.

As a practicing radiologist, I see the need for having this information available in a quickly and easily read format that is topically focused.

We are providing the documents below for your use. If you use them as is, please acknowledge the Health Physics Society. If you modify them substantially, please remove all references to the Society.

Information of Interest to Health Care Personnel

For your patients who want more information, we sponsor another website that is dedicated to public education. This site, (Radiation Answers, contains scientific and objective information about radiation in a friendly, easy-to-read format.

Please continue to check back as we expand our online assistance to health care providers.
