The in vivo measurement of the total iodine content of the thyroid gland by x-ray fluorescence.

Abstract

An accurate, in vivo Am-241 excited x-ray fluorescence techniques was investigated for exploring the correlation between thyroid iodine content (TIC) and various thyroid disorders. The correction for fluorescent x-ray absorption by overlying tissues was made by using the x-ray to gamma ray peak ratio from administered I-123 as an index of thyroid gland… (More)
