This volume deals with the histologic effects of various types of irradiation on several different animal species. The lesions of total body irradiation, obtained from externally applied roentgen, gamma and beta rays, also fast and slow neutrons, are compared with those produced by a variety of alpha, beta and gamma ray emitters given internally.
Each major organ or tissue forms the subject of a separate chapter. There are a large number of contributors and each concentrated on a particular organ. The plan of the book is to give in detail the effects on a given organ of one type of total body irradiation from an external or internal source and with this as a base line to compare the changes produced by external and internal radiations from other sources.
The authors have assembled a large mass of material on the histologic lesions of irradiation. The data is presented well and
