radiation therapy

A question came up during a course I gave today about whether or not
patients receiving radiation therapy, nuclear medicine treatments, and
other similar high-dose procedures have any increased incidence in cancer
(presumably other cancers, in the case of radiation oncology patients)
resulting from these doses.  Does anyone know of any studies that have been
performed in this area?

Thanks in advance for your help.



The opinions expressed above are well-reasoned and insightful.  Needless to
say, they are not those of my employer. (with apologies to Michael Feldman)
