A health survey of more than 143,000 radiologic technologists is described.
The population was identified from the 1982 computerized files of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, which was established in 1926.
Inactive members were traced to obtain current addresses or death notifications.
More than 6000 technologists were reported to have died.
For all registrants who were alive when located, a detailed 16-page questionnaire was sent, covering occupational histories, medical conditions, and other personal and lifestyle characteristics.
