Polonium isotopes

Dear sir,
I would like to know the usage of Polonium isotopes in RT.
What are the advantages over microfocal x ray unit.
Is it available in India?

Regards

As a curiosity, could you share the resource that suggested polonium as an RT isotope? I believe these isotopes primarily have commercial value as powerful alpha emitters for controlling static charge. Other uses seem to have been military, or nefarious (see Alexander Litvinenko).
