Question Difference between 8RT & 8BA heads

What's the difference between 8RT and 8BA heads on say a 51 flathead? I was at a truck show and the Canadian-made trucks have 8RT heads that say "Made in Canada" but my dad's US-built truck has 8BA heads. Are there any appreciable differences between the two?
