Search for correlation of radon levels and incidence of salivary gland tumors.
American academy of oral pathology. Annual meeting. San Francisco CA (USA), 1992/05/09.
Studies were undertaken to determine if there is a statistical correlation between radon levels and the incidence of salivary gland tumors because of high levels of radon in Pennsylvania.
In Part I of the study, the incidence of minor salivary gland tumors accessioned by Temple University, Emory University, and University of Southern California from 1986 to 1988 were correlated with average radon levels in the three locations with the use of standard statistical analyses.
In Part 11, the occurrence of malignant salivary gland tumors was obtained for each of the 67 counties in Pennsylvania from 1986 to 1988 and correlated statistically with radon levels and population figures in each of those counties.
