Studies on the deposition of inhaled fibrous material in the respiratory tract of the rat and its subsequent clearance using radioactive tracer techniques. 1. UICC crocidolite asbestos.
Abstract Radioactive tracer methods were used to study the distribution of crocidolite between the upper and lower respiratory tracts after single short inhalation exposures of the “nose only” type.Expand

Pulmonary deposition of inhaled particles with diameters in the range 2.5 to 7.5 micron.
Monodisperse polystyrene particles of 2.5,5 and 7.5 micron diameter, labelled with technetium-99m, were administered to mouth-breathing subjects respiring at a rate of 10 breaths min-1. MeasurementsExpand
