Abstract/Summary

The bioavailability of an ionic and a number of environmental sources of radiocaesium has been assessed using a dual isotope technique to measure the net transfer of radiocaesium across the gut, termed the true absorption coefficient (At). Transfer across the gut varied considerably, At values ranged from 0.12 to 0.88.
