I do not suggest that there is any particular thing that should be 
looked for.  There are a range of things that could be looked for, for 
instance wounds that heal slowly, localized trauma from the presence of 
depleted uranium, symptoms of poisoning due to the toxic affects, or any 
number of other things.  The affects would obviously differ depending on 
the type of intake  (e.g. aerosol, fragments, contaminates from oxidation).
