Prompt Gamma Measurements of Nitrogen and Chlorine in Normal Volunteers
The Swansea in vivo neutron activation analysis (IVNAA) instrument, which is based on a 4 GBq Cf-252 neutron source, has been developed primarily for the prompt-gamma measurement of total body (TB) Ca, N, Cl, H and C, and partial body Cd, using semiconductor (HPGe) and scintillation (HaI) gamma ray detectors (Ryde et al., 1987).
