Detection and quantification of radioactivity is critical to personnel and environmental safety, since radioactivity cannot be detected by the human senses. Devices to measure the dose of radiation received, and the amount of the radionuclide present are available. In spite of this, there are few qualified commercial enterprises that handle radiological monitoring or analysis. Most radiological expertise is confined to government or industrial institutions whose primary responsibility or business involves radioactive materials. Some general-purpose radiological services are provided by individual state laboratories.
