Subject: [Histonet] Gold seed implants
A pathologist just asked me how to easily find "gold seed" implants out of a chest wall mass the size of a big steak. After cutting through the tissue and only finding one, he suggested a strong acid to dissolve all the tissue.  Oncology told me you can see it under a fluoroscope, but still, the pathologist would have to dissect them out.   Maybe a funeral home incinerator...ha!  Any ideas?
