The Holt Radium Institute of Manchester has now published three statistical reports of five year periods of experience in the results of their methods of radium and roentgen therapy, mostly for cancer. This institution has been a mecca for radiologists and surgeons seeking improved methods for the application of radium in cancerous diseases and for roentgen therapists intrigued with the "beam direction technic" of repeating the same roentgen dosage factors to the same anatomic area from day to day.
