Today radium has only limited applications in research laboratories, for example for the preparation of radon standard solutions, in neutron sources of the type Ra-Be, etc.

Possible use in radiotherapy of some cancers.

Radium was used in the past for luminescent painting of watches and other instruments, was used in toothpaste, cosmetics, etc. These applications are not permitted now because radium is strongly radioactive and dangerous.
