SummaryA method has been developed whereby the liver content of photon-emitting transuranium elements can be determined in living beagles by a combination of total-body and partial-body counting. Calibration of the system was accomplished through the photon counting of intact dogs and also of the parts of the same animals following autopsy. A determination of the calibration factors for252Cf,247Cf,243Cm,237Pu, and241Am has been made. The special case of252Cf was treated in which a significant… CONTINUE READING
