wonderful refence

It's a wonderful reference for a practiing medical/healt physicist. It's concise but deep in terms of cotent.

Good overview of the field.

This book is a must for anyone working in the field of radiation detection, and contains a clear, readable descriptionof the working principles of quite a lot of detector types.The weaker point is the description of the associated frontend (analogue) electronics that goes with those detectors: itis a bit concise.

A good point for starting and for continuing

I have used this book for my studies and for working, and it's really beautiful: it starts with basic principles and after few pages you are deep inside the detector, and you start feeling it. The next step is to take an article of Nucl. Instr. Methods and read it.

Excellent book, detailed on the subject matter and readable

This is an excellent text and considered the prime source for an detailed overview of it's field.

A must-have for any high energy experimental physicist!

This Tome contains so much useful information on the art and science of radiation detection that I hardly can believe I got along without it. Don't let the steep price discourage you. This book is a must-have for any high energy experimental physics graduate student or even undergraduate. It fills many of the gaps between traditional course books and real-world experience and has a series of encyclopedic bibliographies to boot
