Advances in Biological and Medical Physics, Volume V, provides an overview of the state of knowledge in biological and medical physics. The book opens with a discussion of electron spin resonance and nuclear magnetic resonance and their applications to biology. This is followed by separate chapters on action spectroscopy, the genetics of somatic mammalian cells, partial-cell irradiation, electrical properties of tissue and cell suspensions, quantum effects in human vision, and television techniques in biology and medicine. Subsequent chapters deal with studies on the use of antibodies as carriers of radioactivity for therapy; studies on the fundamentals of cholesterol metabolism performed with cholesterol labeled with tritium; examples of low level counting problems which have been successfully solved; and the radioactivity of the human body.
