National Cancer Institute Buys Radium
The National Cancer Institute purchased in December 9.5 Gm. of radium valued at $200,000. The radium supply will be lent to hospitals and clinics for treatment of cancer. An institution that borrows the radium must take the responsibility of transporting it from the Bureau of Standards and back again for periodic testing, must store it properly while using it and must insure it against loss and damage. According to the Health Officer, personnel and equipment of the borrowing institution must meet standards equal to those established by the American Board of Radiology for the safe use of radium. According to the terms of the loan, preference in use of the radium will be given to persons unable to pay for treatment.
