All radiation – be it ultraviolet, heat, X-rays or nuclear radiation – will cause damage to the human organism if it is exposed to too much for too long. Different types are somatic damage, which occurs in the exposed organism itself, genetic damage, which appears in offspring, and teratogenic damage, which is harm to the embryo during pregnancy.

The exhibition centres around nuclear radiation and X-rays. The focus is on medical aspects, with the aim of showing radiation’s usefulness in diagnostics and treatment next to its potentially harmful effects.
