Gross distribution of $sup 241$Am in a man seven years after inhalation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The gross distribution of $sup 241$Am remaining in a man seven years after exposure to airborne Am particles was determined by several techniques. Measurements were made of the radiation with NaI(Tl) crystals, one above and one below the supine subject at seven equally spaced points along the long axis. The patterns obtained indicated skeletal deposition in addition to material in the thorax. More detail was obtained from a longitudinal profile scan made at 10 cm intervals with a slit-collimated detector. A general labelling of the skeleton consistent with bone surface deposition was observed, together with a pronounced increased concentration in ... continued below

Description

The gross distribution of $sup 241$Am remaining in a man seven years after exposure to airborne Am particles was determined by several techniques. Measurements were made of the radiation with NaI(Tl) crystals, one above and one below the supine subject at seven equally spaced points along the long axis. The patterns obtained indicated skeletal deposition in addition to material in the thorax. More detail was obtained from a longitudinal profile scan made at 10 cm intervals with a slit-collimated detector. A general labelling of the skeleton consistent with bone surface deposition was observed, together with a pronounced increased concentration in the thorax. A transverse profile scan was made at the point which had yielded the highest counting rate in the longitudinal scan. Unequivocal evidence for a lung burden was observed in the asymmetry of this scan. The presence of the long-term lung burden was further confirmed by measurements made over the chest with a gas-filled proportional counter. (auth)
