But, you have to have something to look for...For example, one could look  at 
DNA damage, but since estimates range from about 50,000 to 500,000 molecular  
lesions per cell per day (from natural metabolic processes), and it would 
take 5  - 50 rad whole body dose to add even another 1%, you'd never see anything 
 from a low chronic dose (such as one would be receiving from an intake of DU 
(or  natural U for that matter).
It wouldn't be like looking for a needle in a haystack.  It would be  like 
looking for a needle in a needlestack of tens to hundreds of thousands  of 
identical needles, all of them potentially lethal in essentially the same  way.
What is it you are suggesting someone should be trying to detect?

When nothing  is detected, nothing would be treated and in reverse, treatment 
would be  consistent with what was found.  You have to look first  though.
