While processing 15 wafers of radioactive cobalt for insertion in a therapy machine, Lawrence H. Lanzl uses a magnifying periscope installed in a heavy shielded cave for handling highly radioactive materials at the Argonne National Laboratory, Lemont, Illinois. Lanzl is an associate professor of Radiology of the University of Chicago. The radioactive cobalt will be used in cancer control research at the Argonne Cancer Research Hospital, operated by the University of Chicago under contract with the Atomic Energy Commission.
