Abstract: Radiation dose measurement is mainly concerned with the measurement of the amount of energy absorbed in matter, when it undergoes different interaction processes with the irradiated material. The demand of radiation detectors has been increased in different fields of science and technology; some of these application areas are in the field of radiology, health-physics and personnel monitoring, in which detection instru- ments are demanded for the measurement of radiation dosage. The range of radiation detectors has been developed exploiting various basic methods, of which theory and technology are on a sufficiently firm basis to allow of a unified presentation. The types of radiation detectors most widely used are; Ionization chambers, Proportional and Geiger counters, and Scintillation counters. The main objective of this project work being, ” Radiation dose measurement by NaI(Tl) scintillation detector ”, we give a brief literature review of the basic processes and properties of NaI(Tl) scintillation counter in an introductory chapter, radiation interactions and interaction coefficients in chapter one, before going directly in to radiation dose measurement by NaI(Tl) detector, in chapter two part of the paper; in the effort to maintain the com- pleteness and coherence of the discussion. However, here we are concerned only with interactions that count appreciably in reducing the intensity of incident radiation.
