A discussion is given of the relative radiation sensitivity of the embryo and fetus at various stages of development and also a comparison with the somatic tissues of the adult; the congenital anomalie which one might expect following certain levels of exposure at various gestational ages; the extent to which it is possible to extrapolate animal exposure data to the human and general recommendations regarding the exposure of the human gravid uterus.
