Summary of "Quantitative measurement of Rn radioactivity in exhaled breath from patients with bone metastasis of castration-resistant prostate cancer treated with RaCl."

The α-emitting radionuclide radium-223 (Ra) is widely used for the treatment of bone metastasis in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer. However, Ra decays into radon-219 (Rn) which is a noble-gas isotope, and Rn may escape from patients treated with Ra via their respiration. In this study, we quantified the amount of Rn contained in the breath of patients treated with Ra to estimate its effect on the internal exposure dose of caregivers.
