Protecting and Improving Health through the Radiological Sciences: A Report of the Surgeon General prepared by the National Advisory Committee on Radiation
Description:
From the Summary and Recommendations: "In this report the Committee traces the remarkable growth that has taken place in the uses of ionizing radiation in the health professions, in industry, and in other walks of life. It also notes a number of emerging problems which not only are of importance from the point of view of radiation protection, but also, if not alleviated, threaten the quality of medical care in the United States and the translation of the advances of atomic research into needed benefits for the people."
