Abstract

Direct counting of the disappearance rate of radioactivity of a gamma-emitting isotope placed in a blind intestinal loop located in the subcutaneous tissue provides a good measure of the absorption of that isotope. The problems encountered in the preparation of these loops and their use in absorption studies are discussed. It is noted in passing that significant absorption of iron may take place from the colon.
