    For those who don’t know, it’s worth pointing out that dose is not simply how many ‘counts’ you get. Not all counts are equal, and those with a higher energy level are more dangerous. This is why an ingested alpha source is so dangerous - they have a far higher energy level than gamma and beta rays. There’s also the question of penetration to consider as well.

    TL;DR = counts != dose

No public wish lists :(
