Mike shares from The Emperor of All Maladies on the development and progression of Lung Cancer, and talks with Joyce about Radiation exposure from Diagnostic Imaging.

Be sure to read THE EMPEROR OF ALL MALADIES, a kind of "biography" of cancer, by Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee.  See the New York Times book review for this important book, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/14/books/review/Weiner-t.html

In the conversation they refer to a previous interview with Dr. Madan Rehani, Chief of the Division of Radiation Protection for the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.  Click here for the interview.

Joyce speaks from the Toronto airport, on her way to Varna, Bulgaria, to participate in the International Conference on Radiation Protection in Medicine, sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency based in Vienna.  She will share more about this conference and about the survey she presented there in the coming weeks.
