This book provides readers with a broad view of the field of molecular dosimetry by discussing its origins, underlying concepts, the wide range of approaches to making the measurements and applications for the results. Specific topics include the direct assessment of human carcinogens and assessment of low level risks, molecular epidemiology, validation of molecular epidemiologic methods, quantitative analysis of DNA adducts, the application of fluorescence to analysis of genotoxicity, exposure control versus risk assessment, genetic testing in the workplace, and medical screening for carcinogenesis.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
Use certain CRC Press medical books to get your CPD points up for revalidation. We provide a free online form to document your learning and a certificate for your records.
