Abstract

The following is a brief account of an investigation into the effects of high doses of 15 MeV electrons on the testes of the rat. The right testes only of 20 rats were irradiated, the dose being 10,000 r. The rest of the body was screened and received only about 30 r. The animals were killed at intervals after irradiation (3 days to 3 weeks).
