U.S. Transuranium and Uranium Registries Learning from Plutonium and Uranium Workers

Special issue of Health Physics journal features USTUR research

The August 2019 issue of Health Physics was dedicated to a special issue on USTUR research. Presentations from the USTUR’s one-day special session of the 2016 Health Physics Society meeting were published as full length articles, along with an introduction to the special issue and a summary of the roundtable discussion. The special issue was published as one of several activities designed to commemorated 50 years of research at the USTUR.
