A review of a number of cases treated by radium in the year 1924

  • Maurice R. J. Hayes


  1. 1.

    Rodent ulcers respond favourably to treatment by radium. One application is usually sufficient, and the cosmetic results are very good.

  2. 2.

    The combined applications of radium and X-Rays are more beneficial than one or other of them alone in the treatment of uterine and oral carcinoma, when a rapid intensive local effect is required as well as a diffuse effect to destroy metastases.

  3. 3.

    For prophylactic post operative irradiation “Deep Therapy” is preferable to radium, because X-Rays are more diffuse in their action, and a more homogeneous depth dose can be obtained with them than with the amount of radium which is ordinarily available.
