We have found an approximate solution of a two-compartment kinetic model. The model considered allows exchange of tracer between the two compartments, and loss of this tracer from one compartment. This solution was used to calculate the turnover rates of the two compartments from the retention of the tracer in the model. Hence, by measuring in a whole body(More)
The retention of85Sr for periods up to 150 days has been followed in 8 patients with osteoporosis, 2 patients with Paget's disease and 2 patients with chronic renal failure. The rate of decrease of whole body retention of isotope does not represent the rate of loss from the skeleton, as isotope returning from bone goes into a rapidly exchanging pool(More)
