Paper Abstract

A comparison is made between the techniques of Prompt Gamma Neutron Capture Analysis and Nuclear Resonance Absorption (NRA) of gamma-rays as applied to in-vivo determination of body elemental content in humans. Special emphasis is given to the quantification of body protein via the measurement of total body nitrogen. A proposed facility for in-vivo determination of nitrogen using the NRA method is described. The advantages and disadvantages of each method are listed and discussed.
