Abstract  

The k0-method of neutron activation analysis has been tested for applicability to the determination of trace elements in samples of thyroids of inhabitants from regions in Belarus affected to different degree by thyroid cancer among children after the accident of the Chemobyl power plant. It is shown that thek0-method produces results identical to the relative method in neutron activation analysis. Significant differences in the elemental composition of thyroids from the regions of Gomel and Minsk are observed and may be related to the different levels of occurrence of thyroid cancer among children.
