The article constitutes an overview of the application of radiometric methods in the research of two-phase flows: liquid-solid particles and liquid-gas flows. The methods which were used were described on the basis of the experiments which were conducted in the Water Laboratory of the Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences and in the Sedimentological Laboratory of the Faculty of Geology, Geophysics and Environmental Protection, AGH-UST in Kraków. The advanced mathematical methods for the analysis of signals from scintillation probes that were applied enable the acquisition of a number of parameters associated with the flowing two-phase mixture, such as: average velocities of the particular phases, concentration of the solid phase, and void fraction for a liquid-gas mixture. Despite the fact that the application of radioactive sources requires considerable carefulness and a number of state permits, in many cases these sources become useful in the experiments which are presented.
