Ryan, J.L. (2012). Ionizing Radiation: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Journal of Investigative Dermatology. 132(3 Pt 2):985-93.
The author describes the effects of ionizing radiation on the skin, and includes a concise description of how radiation burns manifest, noting how they differ from other burns and why this causes treatment challenges. She concludes after a literature review that there is no “gold standard” for assessing and treating radiation skin injury.
