X-rayed mouse shows a tumor induced by strontium-90, which has a chemical similarity to calcium and so tends to lodge the bones where it emits beta rays.
The mouse received a strong strontium injection at Argonne Laboratory. It developed bone damage; later a large cancerous mass appeared, grossly distending the animal’s right leg. Three X-ray negatives  each printed in a different colour, were combined and enlarged two diameters to create this unusual effect.

Hosteen Tso, holding a ceremonial rattle, ranked as the most powerful medicine man in Monument Valley until his death last year. A favourite of motion picture directors, he offered to conjure fair weather for camera crews on location. His son, Hosteen Tso Begay succeeded him as medicine man.

Anesthetized rats at Argone National Laboratory ride a toy train to get a dose of electron rays. Legs taped to flat cars, they pass under a particle accelerator. Electrons, streaming through holes in the metal bars, bombard a small area on the back of each animal. To determine radiation sensitivity, biologists measure the time the exposed skin requires to recover.
