Abstract : The objectives of this study were to measure hematological recovery responses in the sublethally irradiated dog exposed to 150 rads of x rays; and, furthermore, to compare these effects with those observed in animals irradiated with 150 rads of mixed gamma-neutron radiation. Finally, measurements of hematological recovery capabilities were to be obtained in previously irradiated dogs subjected to subsequent identical exposures after 3-month intervals.
