Report includes a review and scope of the medical program. Since the inception of the Atomic Bomb Project, an expanding research program aimed at the diagnosis and control of hazards peculiar to the development of atomic energy has been in effect. These hazards include those injurious effects produced through accidental external body exposure to radiations emitted by various radioactive materials during the experimental or processing operations as well as the chemical toxicity or localized radiation from such materials deposited within the body. Considerable preliminary or pilot experimental and clinical information has been obtained by this research program during the last three years. Many criitcal problems of far-reaching scope remain to be solved however. The report goes on to discuss the survey of general studies on radiation effects.
