AUTORADIOGRAPHIC DEMONSTRATION OF THORIUM DEPOSITION IN TISSUES. A CASE REPORT

Abstract

A case is reported of a patient suffering from a fatal myocardial infection. Case history and autopsy studies revealed that cerebral arteriograms using Thorotrast some nine years previously had resulted in a nine-year splenic dose of approximately 1500 rad. No malignant processes were found at autopsy, likely because of the relatively short time interval involved since Thorotrast administration. Spleen and liver autoradiograms superimposed on photomicrographs are included. (H.M.G.)
