After completing a master's degree at McGill University under Rutherford's tutelage, Brooks continued her post-graduate work at Bryn Mawr College and Cambridge University, eventually returning to McGill to work again with Rutherford. In 1904 she left Canada to work at Barnard College in New York City, and then with Curie in Paris. Brooks had a significant career as a nuclear scientist, but her success was hampered by the fact that she was a woman. She eventually married and left research. Her premature death at age fifty-six was probably related to her work with radiation.
|The Chemistry of Contrast Agents in Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging

There has been a huge increase in the use of MRI and contrast agents in medicine in recent years as evidenced by a big increase in the number of hospitals with MRI machines and the ever-increasing number of examinations using contrast agents. Contrast agents have revolutionized the use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in medical diagnostics, allowing doctors to distinguish between normal and abnormal tissues and ultimately improving prognosis for the patient.
This monograph covers all aspects of production, use, operating mechanisms and theory of these diagnostic agents, used to produce high contrast images in MRI. It will therefore be unique resource for what is currently a very active domain of research both in universities and in industry.
The Chemistry of Contrast Agents in Medical Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a comprehensive treatise:
* written by the most active scientists in the field of contrast agents for medical MRI - from both university and industrial backgrounds
* covering the topic from every angle from synthesis to safety considerations
* invaluable to physicists, chemists, biologists as well as physicians
* the first in-depth coverage of this topic

This volume provides a thorough treatment of multiple scattering of light and other electromagnetic radiation in media composed of randomly and sparsely positioned particles. It systematically and consistently presents radiative transfer theory as a branch of classical macroscopic electromagnetics. After tracing the fundamental link between radiative transfer theory and the effect of coherent backscattering, the authors explain them in the context of a comprehensive hierarchy of electromagnetic scattering problems. Dedicated sections present a thorough discussion of the physical meaning and range of applicability of the radiative transfer equation and compare the self-consistent microphysical and the traditional phenomenological approaches to radiative transfer. This self-contained book will be valuable for science professionals, engineers, and graduate students working across a wide range of disciplines including optics, electromagnetics, remote sensing, atmospheric radiation, astrophysics, and biomedicine.

This newly revised and updated edition of Radiation Biophysics provides an in-depth description of the physics and chemistry of radiation and its effects on biological systems. Coverage begins with fundamental concepts of the physics of radiation and radioactivity, then progresses through the chemistry and biology of the interaction of radiation with living systems. The Second Edition of this highly praised text includes major revisions which reflect the rapid advances in the field. New material covers recent developments in the fields of carcinogenesis, DNA repair, molecular genetics, and the molecular biology of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. The book also includes extensive discussion of the practical impact of radiation on everyday life.
- Covers the fundamentals of radiation physics in a manner that is understandable to students and professionals with a limited physics background
- Includes problem sets and exercises to aid both teachers and students
- Discusses radioactivity, internally deposited radionuclides, and dosimetry
- Analyzes the risks for occupational and non-occupational workers exposed to radiation sources

Author: William D. Ehmann
From nuclear dating methods to nucleosynthesis in stars. it's all here. The first practical, comprehensive guide to the science of radiochemistry. Radiochemistry and Nuclear Methods of Analysis is the first thorough and up-to-date look for the nonspecialist at the fundamentals of radiochemistry as well as the full range of advances currently made possible by the applications of radioactivity. Without an emphasis on high-level mathematics or abstruse theoretical physics, the book provides a clear, fundamentals-first look at radioactivity, the principles of radioactive decay, and nuclear reactions, as well as:
* Modern radiochemical instrumentation
* Nuclear dating methods
* Methods for the production of radionuclides
* The use of tracers and nuclear methods of analysis
* The origin of the chemical elements
* The biological effects of radiation
The book's user-friendly instructional format, designed for both beginning and advanced students, includes numerous end-of-chapter problems ranging from the simple to complex which familiarize the reader with equations and concepts in the text. References to recent monographs, available in most college and university libraries, provide direction to more specialized literature. Invaluable to both students and professionals in search of a practical grasp of the subject, Radiochemistry and Nuclear Methods of Analysis is a clear introduction to radioactivity and radionuclear chemistry's principles, methods, and applications.

Radiochemistry or Nuclear Chemistry is the study of radiation from an atomic or molecular perspective, including elemental transformation and reaction effects, as well as physical, health and medical properties.
This revised edition of one of the earliest and best known books on the subject has been updated to bring into teaching the latest developments in research and the current hot topics in the field. In order to further enhance the functionality of this text, the authors have added numerous teaching aids that include an interactive website that features testing, examples in MathCAD with variable quantities and options, hotlinks to relevant text sections from the book, and online self-grading texts.
As in the previous edition, readers can closely follow the structure of the chapters from the broad introduction through the more in depth descriptions of radiochemistry then nuclear radiation chemistry and finally the guide to nuclear energy (including energy production, fuel cycle, and waste management).
New edition of a well-known, respected text in the specialized field of nuclear/radiochemistry
Includes an interactive website with testing and evaluation modules based on exercises in the book

An isotope is one of two or more atoms of the same element that have the same number of protons in their nucleus but different numbers of neutrons. This two-volume book set and CD-ROM contains information about the emitted radiation (x-rays, x-ray particles, etc) from all known isotopes. This information is of interest to scientists wanting to detect radiation, protect people from it, or work with radioactive materials. This edition contains nuclear structure and decay data for approximately 3138 isotopes and isomers. Summary drawings, convenient tables of structure and decay data, and extensive appendices expedite the retrieval and use of nuclear information.
