Abstract : This is a critical report on the L.H. Grey Memorial Conference held in Oxford, 13-16 July 1981. The Conference was entitled 'Biological Action of Radiofrequency, Microwave and Ultrasonic Radiations.' The report provides a background identifying the field of interest in broader terms, intended for the general reader. It is then pointed out that the conference was mainly directed toward research and practice related to the possible value of nonionizing radiations in cancer therapy. There were, however, tutorial lectures of a fairly general character and some discussion of biological effects not necessarily arising from production of heat in irradiated tissues. (Author)
