Atomic Medicine is a book edited from contributions by 20 well-known physicians and other scientists who are versed in some phase of atomic energy. The book covers many closely related subjects with its 22 chapters devoted to facts and figures of an atomic disaster and survival methods; basic physics of radioactivity, including production, measurement and protection; fundamental aspects of radiobiology; radioactive isotopes as tracers; medical application of radioactive phosphorus and iodine; and basic research problems in atomic medicine.
This second edition has been rather extensively revised and the information on atomic energy, as applied to medicine, is amazingly well presented.
