    Protection against undesired exposure to X-rays or the gamma rays from radium can be had, but for economy and convenience it is desirable to analyze closely, with certain fundamental principles in view, each particular problem. Basic rules for X-ray and radium protection have been promulgated by the International Commission on X-ray and Radium Protection and published in numerous journals. More detailed rules, prepared in this country, are available in N.B.S. Handbook 20 (X-ray Protection) and N.B.S. Handbook 23 (Radium Protection) (1). Reference to these is recommended before planning a new X-ray installation.
