Radiopharmaceuticals and the Ophthalmologist

Author(s): Sunny Chi Lik Au

Introduction

Radiopharmaceuticals are not commonly used in ophthalmologist hands, but occasionally used for head and neck cancers [1], especially over the southeastern Asia [2]. With close proximity between the eyes and the sinuses, ophthalmologists sometimes encounter these oncological patients with ocular complaints secondary to orbital invasion of tumor [3]. Here, we outline an ophthalmologist encounter with clinical radiation hazard from such, and patient’s problem with after-life cremation.
