Representatives from professional medical societies, leading therapy centers, and governmental agencies attended a 2-day conference, September 3-4, 1964, sponsored by the Division of Radiological Health of the Public Health Service, to discuss programs dealing with the management of radium and radium substitutes for medical uses. The discussions were excerpted from the transcript and organized under the five conclusions reached by the conference. These conclusions indicate a need for comprehensive regulatory programs for radium, sealed source design standards for radium, adoption of suitable radium substitutes, research efforts toward developing better and safer sealed sources, and promotion of therapeutic techniques that will reduce radiation exposure to medical personnel.
