These proceedings include the formal presentations, edited transcripts of the discussions, and an appendix containing presentations by representatives of commercial suppliers of afterloading materials and equipment. The first session of the conference was devoted to discussions of the hazards of radium and radium substitutes in the treatment of cancer, the development and current status of afterloading techniques in various nations, and the use of computers in radiotherapy. Speakers at the second session discussed dosimetry, treatment of cancer of the uterus, and interstitial techniques. In the third session, there was an open discussion on standardization of afterloading sources.
