A proposal outlines a research program using the Betatron to study the effects of acute radiation and determine acute tolerances and lethal levels of high energy radiation to humans. Clinical experience is desired as there is no practical information relative to the biological effects of such high energy radiations. The study and correlation of animal and human reactions and the physical characteristics of such rdiations is in the experimental stage.
