Radium Treatment


SIR LEONARD HILL returns in NATURE of January 27, p. 151, to his statement "that we would be little the worse off if all the radium now buried in deep holes for security from bombing remained there", and seeks to make good this assertion by reminding us of some of the casualties of radiological practice. He has allowed these examples to stay in the forefront of his mind, instead of fitting them into the groundwork of experience, which every practising radiologist must do.
