A Unique Non-Invasive Intracellular Magnesium Assay Correlating with Cardiac Tissues, Arrhythmias, and Therapeutic Intervention
A novel technique using energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis, (EXAtm), for noninvsive intracellular measurement of magnesium has now been accomplished and proven to be a valuable tool in multiple aspects of normal as well as pathological magnesium metabolism (U.S. patent No 4–717–826, B.S.). Over the last 15 years data has accumulated using the unique method which is now available to accurately evaluate tissue Mg levels.
