Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the workshop held July-August 1997. Among the 23 contributions are multiple studies of victims of the Chernobyl accident as well as discussion of topics including cataractous changes related to radiation and aging among the atomic bomb survivors in Hiroshima; radiation cataracts in high dose liquidators who developed acute radiation syndrome; physical and radiobiological considerations in eye dosimetry; biocompatibility testing of intraocular biomaterials; x-ray sensitivity and DNA damage in bovine lens epithelial cells ; and prevalence of lens opacity in population with chronic low-dose gamma-radiation exposure from radioactive apartments in Taiwan.
