Abstract : The report covers the first year of a three year study of the effects of x-irradiation on the chromosomes of human subjects. The purpose of this study is to determine if chromosomal damage can be used as a means of estimating the amount of irradiation a person has received. The three year study is divided into three periods: I. Analysis of spontaneous chromosomal damage and aberrations occurring in normal, nonirradiated human subjects. II. Analysis of chromosomal aberrations in human subjects receiving large amounts of x-irradiation. III. Evaluation of chromosomal aberrations as a dosimeter in human subjects receiving serial x-irradiation.
