REPORTED LOSS OF NINE IMPLANTED I-125 SEEDS

The licensee reported that 9 out of 156 I-125 seeds are unaccounted for following an autopsy performed on the recipient of an implant. The implant recipient was a dolphin which received the seeds on 08/16/03 and it died 11/02/03 and an autopsy was performed 11/04/03. The seeds probably came out of the dolphin where it was kept in a tank and washed into the harbor.
