Abstract Various methods for the determination of strontium-90 in bone samples are discussed. The feasibility of using autoradiographic methods for measurements of strontium90 concentration in human bones is discussed. It is concluded that present levels of environmental strontium-90 in human bone as a result of fall-out would require an exposure time of one year to get a weak radioautogram. This assumes a concentration equivalent to one sunshine unit diffusely distributed and corresponds to the distribution in bones from children younger than fifteen years. (C.H.)
