Abstract

Life on Earth has developed under constant exposure to radiation. In addition to ionising radiation from natural sources, a multitude of exposures from artificial sources produced by mankind came into play in the twentieth century. These radioactive sources were produced by some impressive developments in science and technology, and in turn they helped spur further developments, including of course in medical diagnostics and therapy .
