The November issue of Health Physics presents our latest installment of Medical Countermeasures Against Radiological Threats (MCART). This round of papers builds on four similar issues previously presented in Health Physics in this area. We last visited this topic in March and April 2019. Radiation biology, biomarkers, medical countermeasures, and predicting clinical outcomes of radiation exposures – it’s all here in the November issue.

One of the tools available on the journal’s website is Collections. We have grouped Health Physics papers together based on the topic. We have a set of collections that generally parallel the Health Physics Society’s sections. Just click on the “Collections” drop-down tab to see all our recent papers on Environmental and Radon, External Dosimetry, Nonionizing Radiation, etc.!
