    In Dr. Colwell, pathologist and radiologist, and Professor Russ, physicist, wrote a timely monograph entitled "X-Ray, Radium and the Living Cell." They have now written a much needed monograph, essentially a compilation, which gives in a concise manner all obtainable knowledge, both clinical and experimental, relative to injuries of all.   1. The dangers of over-exposure to X rays and radium can be avoided by the provision of adequate protection and suitable working conditions. It is the duty of those in charge of X-ray and radium departments to ensure such conditions for their personnel. The known effects to be guarded against are:— (a) Injuries to the superficial tissues; (b) Derangements of internal organs and changes .

Radium breaks down or decays into other substances—radon, radium A, radium B, radium C, and so on—and eventually ends up as stable lead, which is the decay chain of uranium. Many of the radium techniques that were in everyday use some 15–20 years ago have now been replaced by treatment with megavoltage radiation.

The discovery of radium and polonium allowed us to define the properties of radioactivity, a term coined by the researcher herself.
