It is well known that exposures like those from 226Ra, 224Ra and Thorotrast® injections increase the risk of neoplasia in bone marrow and liver. The thorium-based radioactive contrast agent Thorotrast® was introduced in 1929 and applied worldwide until the 1950s, especially in angiography and arteriography. Due to the extremely long half-life of several hundred years and the life-long retention of the thorium dioxide particles in the human body, patients suffer lifetime internal exposure. The… Expand
