Mortality and cancer incidence among 999 neurological patients exposed to chronic alpha-particle irradiation from 232ThO2 (Thorotrast) administered for cerebral angiography in 1935-1947 was compared to that of 1480 similar patients examined with cerebral angiography without Thorotrast in 1946-1963 (controls). The ratio of standardized mortality/morbidity ratios (SMRs) for patients exposed to Thorotrast and controls was the relative risk, which was analyzed by multiplicative regression (RRREG… CONTINUE READING
