Polarizing microscopy (PM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), x-ray dispersive analysis (EDAX), x-ray diffraction (XRD), and infrared spectrometry (IR) were used to study the following pathological mineralizations: calcifications and silicon(Si)-bearing mineralizations in cerebral tissue from an epileptic child; traces of Si-bearing particles in periprosthesic mammarian tissue, and calcifications in capsular mammarian tissue from a patient with a silicone gel mammarian implant, and 2 calcium… CONTINUE READING
