some of the patients in the Sonoma State study were put through painful procedures like the pneumoencelphalogram, in which air is injected into the brain before a series of X-rays.

'Imagine puncturing someone�s spinal cord, drawing fluid out and putting a foreign substance in there. Gas,' says Karen. 'When they trap air in your body, you�re in pain, excruciating pain, for days.'

'They were the raw material of medical research,' says Susan Lederer, who teaches medical history at Yale University. She was a member of the presidential committee that investigated the radiation experiments, and she says she wasn�t shocked by the findings because researchers have been using disabled children in experiments for over a century"

I have had a pneumoencephalogram: barfed for three days solid. Seems a bit drastic. :-(
