Are YOU An Atomic Veteran? brochure (1.2 MB, PDF) provides information on presumptive service‑connected health conditions, health registry, benefits and claims, and Veterans' Advisory Board on Dose Reconstruction.
The Environmental Health Registry Programs brochure (495 KB, PDF) provides an overview of five VA health registry programs that track the health of Veterans exposed to environmental hazards during military service: Ionizing Radiation, Agent Orange, Gulf War, Depleted Uranium, and Toxic Embedded Fragments.
Veterans and Radiation, a Veterans Health Initiative independent study guide, provides clinicians an overview of issues facing Veteran patients who may have been exposed to ionizing and non-ionizing radiation during military service.
