FEBRUARY 6, 1948 Cancer Patient's Use of Iodine Is as Simple as Drinking Water But It Must Contain Few Atoms BLYTHEVILLE (.ARK.)

Radioactive Iodine is now being recognized as a routine treatment for certain types of thyroid cancer particularly those types of cancer where Ihe original cancerous condition has spread to other parts of the body and will collect iodine. Such distant cancers arc called metastases. Jn sonic such severe cases radioactive Iodine comes into use. Tracer Technique Ilseil A patient suffering from thyroid cancer—one ivho is likely to benefit by tliu new treatment—is carefully prepared before he rcceius his liiot glass- of water containing radioactive iodine. Extensive X-ray pictures are taken to determine where the thyroid cancer may have spread. He is placed on a diet of low Iodine content. This prepaus the way for small tracer doses of radioactive Iodine. They are given to determine whether the distant thyroid cancerous growths will pick tip the radioactive Iodine. Some types of thyroid cancerous tissue will collect the iodine others will nol. No matter where the body thyroid oncer has spread If It still picks up radioactive iodine, it can be detected by the Geiger counter, » delicate Instrument that detects and records radio activity. When it has been determined that a patient's thyroid cancer will collect Iodine, the Memorial scientists move quickly to administer the radioactive substance. The radio- •ctive Iodine is in a distilled water solution, usually about three ounc- <W Technicians use long tongs to lift It out of a lead container.
