Novel assessment of hepatic iron distribution by synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence microscopy


Excess iron deposition in the liver is known to be hepatotoxic and may exacerbate liver injury. However, little is known about iron distribution in the lobule because of the lack of a highly sensitive detection method. The aim of this study is to determine iron distribution in the lobule of human liver by means of synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence… (More)
