The proceedings comprise a consensus of current knowledge on important radon diagnostic techniques and how they may best be applied. That knowledge is summarized, placing the various radon diagnostic techniques in perspective. Diagnostic approaches offer improved evaluations of radon-related indoor air quality problems. An informed solution involves knowledge of the building, the building site, and the interaction of radon sources with the living space. The diagnostics are applicable in four phases of the mitigation process: (1) diagnostics that assess the radon problem; (2) premitigation diagnostics, from which a suitable mitigation approach must be selected; (3) diagnostics that check the performance of the radon mitigation solution; and (4) diagnostics that determine if the radon problem has been solved and that guideline radon concentrations have not been exceeded over the different seasonal conditions experienced.
