Title Measurement of cadmium in liver and kidney using in vivo techniques
Bibliographic information 1982, Vol.25, No.1, p.33-37. 14 ref.
Abstract This non-invasive technique was studied in 88 workers of a large industrial complex. In vivo neutron activation analysis gave the clearest results. Workers fell into 3 exposure categories on the basis of the results: mean liver Cd concentrations were 26, 10 and 4ppm, and kidney Cd concentrations 9.5, 5 and 3ppm, respectively. Stored Cd levels in people currently exposed were not significantly different from those who had been exposed in the past.
