    The development of sound methods of radiation protection depended upon reliable dosimetry, both for internal and for external radiation. The proper safety of practices involving radiation exposures can only be adequately reviewed in light of the doses to which tissues are exposed by these practices, and of the types and magnitudes of the risks associated with these doses. Evaluation of risk is an essential step in the pursuit of safety.
