For internal treatment two meth-
ods are doses of radio-
active water, or the administration
of extremely minute quantities of
radium itself. In the he case
either waters from springs examined
and found to contain traces of radium
are used. or radium is used to make
ordinary water radioactive. The
difficulty with spring waters is that
they lose their radioactive power
when bottled and transported and
so lose their value when not con-
sumed st their source.
