A micro beam synchrotron x-ray fluorescence (muSRXRF) technique has been used to determine the localization of metals in primary invasive ductal carcinoma of breast. Nine samples were examined, all of which were formalin fixed tissues arranged as micro arrays of 1.0 mm diameter and 10 microm thickness. Cu was the particular interest in this study although 2D maps of the elements Ca, Fe and Zn, which are also of physiological importance, are presented. The distribution of these metals was obta...Expand abstract
