Radiation Biology and Radiation Countermeasures

B. S. Dwarakanath

Abstract


There is a growing concern of radiation injuries to the public and various professionals due to nuclear proliferation and enhanced terrorist activity as well as the risk of exposure in medical practice during radiation therapy and radiodiagnostics. Therefore, development of effective medical countermeasures against radiological and nuclear scenarios is of immense importance to the defence of all nations and for ensuring the safety of professionals and patients susceptible to radiation exposure.
