Endolymphatic Therapy of Lymph Node Metastases Using 32P and 131I Lipiodol UF

  • H. Weissleder


Lymphography can be used for therapeutic purposes by giving an intralymphatic injection of a contrast medium, which contains radioactive material. The method enables an internal irradiation of the inguinal, iliac and lumbar and axillar lymph nodes. The doses are approximately 100,000 rads. The immediately neighbouring and blood forming organs remain to a great extent unharmed.
