Abstract

Preliminary phantom measurements were carried out for regional determination of calcium in the human forearm. Two paraffine phantoms /“large” and “small”/ were activated, either in the free space or surrounded by paraffine plates, by a252Cf neutron source. Differences between neutron flux densities in positions of the ulna and radius are discussed.
