Imaging Radiation in Space, Imaging Radiation in our Backyards

Medical imaging isotopes transported on the highway. Improperly disposed radioactive research materials. Industrial site monitoring. Dirty bombs. Detecting radioactive materials at ports and border crossings before they enter the US.

If we can image radiation in the galaxy, what about imaging radiation in our backyards?

Answer: NSPECT – A Portable Imaging Neutron and Gamma-Ray Spectrometer
