Abstract

Neutron activation analysis without radiochemical separation was used for simultaneous analysis of eight trace elements in thyroid glands, obtained as necroptic material from persons not suffering from diseases of this gland. Inorganic standard solutions were used for calculations of concentrations of measured elements. Concentrations are expressed in ppm, or ppb. IAEA reference materials were used for quality assurance of analyses. From analyses of 42 thyroids concentration levels of Se, Cs, Sc, Fe, Cr, Zn, Co, and Rb and their variances in the thyroids were calculated. These results might serve as comparison material for medical research of pathological and functional changes in thyroid glands.
