Abstract

Two analytical techniques, neutron activation analysis and X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF) are currently available for in-vivo measurements of heavy metals in various organs of the body. The first method has been widely used for measurements of cadmium in the liver and kidneys of occupationally-exposed persons and, to a lesser extent, among residents in areas of raised environmental levels of the metal. Portable instruments are available, some of which are capable of measuring less than 2 ppm Cd in the liver for a smaller radiation dose (2mSv) than those associated with many X-ray procedures. The XRF technique is most suitable for the measurement of lead in superficial bones and mercury in the kidneys and brain. Developments and applications of both techniques in Swansea are described.
