Discussion and critiques of a second technique, LXRF, may be found elsewhere (Rosen and Slatkin 1993).
This observation has consequences for the interpretation of comparisons between the two in vivo bone lead techniques: LXRF, which measures lead within 1-2 mm of the tibia surface, and KXRF, which measures the average lead concentration throughout the entire cross-section of tibia (but weighted primarily from the tibia surface).
Photon attenuation considerations dictate that LXRF samples only the superficial 1-2 mm of the tibia, whereas KXRF samples lead throughout the cross-section of the tibia (although with better detection efficiency for lead in the tibia surface).
