Description/Abstract:
THIS PAPER IS CONCERNED WITH THE PHYSIOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF IRRADIATION OF SPECIFIC SITES OR OF THE WHOLE ORGANISM. IT IS CLEAR THAT NO SINGLE CHANGE IS PECULIARLY SPECIFIC FOR RADIATION INJURY. SINCE THE IONIZING ENERGY IS DISSIPATED IN A HETEROGENEOUS AND HIGHLY INTEGRATED SYSTEM, MANY DIFFERENT EFFECTS MAY ENSUE, AND NOT ALL OF THESE ARE A DIRECT CONSEQUENCE OF EXPOSURE. THUS, NOT ONLY THE PHYSICOCHEMICAL COMPLEXITIES OF ENERGY ABSORPTION, BUT THE MANY RAMIFICATIONS OF FUNCTION IN THE ORGANISM SEEKING TO RETAIN PHYSIOLOGICAL BALANCE, MUST BE CONTENDED WITH. THE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE RADIATION SYNDROME AND POSSIBLE MODES OF THEIR DEVELOPMENT ARE DISCUSSED.
