This book describes, in fascinating detail, a variety of experiments sponsored by the U.S. government in which people were exposed to radiation, often without their knowledge or consent. Carried out at the height of the Cold War , the experiments included administering radioactive tracers to teenagers at a school for the mentally retarded, injecting plutonium into hospital patients, and intentional releases of radiation into the environment. The book places these experiments within their historical context and reviews the relevant government policies and ethics standards at the time.
For a course covering radiation protection techniques and the effects of radiation on the human body, you may be interested in Radiation Protection in Medical Radiography. For a more concise review of radiation protection topics geared towards radiologic technologists, we also offer Rad Tech's Guide to Radiation Protection.
