Medical Uses of Radium


    THE Medical Research Council has recently published, as No. 90 of its Special Report Series, a summary of reports for 1923 from research centres on the medical uses of radium. The nine clinical centres in Great Britain and Ireland which enjoy the use of radium lent to them by the Medical Research Council have been pursuing these investiga tions for several years, but this is the first occasion upon which the data have been arranged and used for public circulation. This is particularly welcome now, for results have been obtained which invite the careful consideration of radiologists, physicians, surgeons, and pathologists.
