Risks from radium and thorotrastFunded under: FP1-RADPROT 6C
A workshop on "Risks from radium and thorotrast" was held in Bethesda, USA, in October 1988. The proceedings present a review of the most recent information available on the epidemiology of radium 224 and radium 226, given respectively to patients or incorporated by workers. An update of the epidemiology of thorotrast, which has been given for angiography to patients in several countries, is also presented. Results reported from different animal experiments allow an extrapolation of the risk data to other exposure situations and other radionuclides.
