On the cover: Direct, in vivo measurement being performed at the University of Cincinnati for low energy, photon-emitting radioactive materials in the respiratory tract. An array of four 3,000 mm2 germanium detectors is positioned on the anterior thorax of the subject. Radioactive material deposited in the axillary lymph nodes is in close proximity to the detectors and would likely confound the measurement result. See article by Rachel Zeman and colleagues on page 219 for more information.   LWW image
