2. Radio Isotopes

Applications of radioisotope

The applications of radioisotopes have played a significant role in improving the quality of life of human beings. The whole world is aware of the benefits of the radiation, but the phobia of nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (August 6 and 9, 1945) and the nuclear accidents occurred in Chernobyl in Russia (April 25–26, 1986) and Fukushima in Japan (March 2011) was so deep in the mind of the common man that we can still struggle to come out of it. Major problems arrived by workers in nuclear fields are due to lack of legalization, shortage of resources, and knowledge about nuclear society and safe guards. To minimize these problems the international organization such as International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and International Commission on Radiation Protection (ICRP), identify requirements and provide the infrastructure that can support nuclear technology.
