Title: Twenty-eight years of continuous follow-up of patients injected with Thorotrast for cerebral angiography

Abstract

Data are tabulated for 1026 cases over a 28-year use period from 1935 through 1973. The validity and significance of the increased incidence of tumors probably is about 5% margin of error. Death certificates do not give adequate information and autopsy percentages are low. Further studies are needed to give a qualitative estimte of the carcinogenic action. (PCS)
